Mark Your Calendar! The 2015 Assembly of the People of God is quickly approaching! This year’s Assembly is June 5 & 6, 2015, and will focus on the first of our three diocesan pastoral themes, Mission. Registration opens May 1!
This year’s Assembly will look a little different, and responds directly to participant feedback from our previous Assemblies and information received through phase one of our Pastoral Planning process: the event provides people with workshops that are more practical and hands on, and with opportunities to customize their experience to meet their needs and particular charisms.
This event is also a chance to celebrate the progress we have made so far in our pastoral planning throughout the diocese. Please save the date of June 5 &6 for our 2015 Assembly of the People of God. Cost to attend the conference is $20. Registration opens May 1!
