Doing God's holy will is ever a joy-filled adventure. This past Saturday, the Sisters were privileged to attend, sing for, and present at the annual Diocesan Religious Education Congress held at Cardinal Newman High School. After the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, our dear Bishop delivered the keynote address expounding upon the theme of the Congress, "Jesus is the Face of the Father's Mercy", He walked the conference participants through the Holy Father's Bull of Indiction announcing the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Miseriecordiae Vultus, speaking movingly about Jesus' mercy as a loving call to conversion and entering into right relationship with God. The Sisters also benefited from excellent presentations from Fr. John Boettcher, Mr. Mark Brumley, Mr. Rich Curran, and the Plenary Session offered by Dr. Peter Kreeft on the relationship between Mercy and Truth. We are blessed as a Diocese to have such an inspiring and spiritually enriching Congress every year!
O Mary, Model and Teacher of Catechists,
Pray for us!
