Thu, 4/23 –
The office of faith formation is hosting the Spring Pastoral Minister’s Gathering:
Helping Marriages Thrive at Your Parish: A Vision and Strategies for All Pastoral Ministers
In our various ministries as parish leaders, we encounter folks everyday whose marriages are
healthy, those who are struggling because of current challenges impacting their marriage, and
those whose marriages are broken and/or dissolved. What makes the Catholic vision of
Matrimony good news for everyone? What resources are available to provide pastoral care so
that we are supporting and strengthening marriages? How do we put into practice the
“ministry of accompaniment” called for by Pope Francis?
The Spring Gathering will be held on Thursday, April 23, at Cathedral Square Center,
10 a.m.- 3 p.m. and will feature Dr. Jim Healy as the presenter.
The gathering is open to all catechetical leaders, youth ministry leaders, music ministry
leaders, pastoral associates, deacons, and priests. Cost is $30 to attend and includes lunch.
Please contact Jean Kastenholz to register.
