Whatsoever You Do:

Picture2A Diocesan Summit is being held on April 26, 2014 from 9 am to noon in conjunction with the Diocesan Youth Conference for all involved in efforts to defend life and promote the development of every person. The title of the half-day event is “Whatsoever you do…” – a reference to Our Lord’s parable in Matthew 25 about the need to see each person as His brother or sister. The purpose of this gathering is an opportunity for various groups, ministries, and individuals involved in Social Justice, International and Local Development, and Pro-Life to be inspired, network, and grow together as a Diocesan family of faith. There will be an inspiring interactive presentation, and a time for networking and discussion. There is no cost. All are welcome!
