Ministry and Education Conference

Answering Pope Francis' Call: Becoming a Church of Mercy

Dr. Marti Jewell

Friday/Saturday, June 26-27, 9am - 4:15pm, both days.
CHRISTUS Heritage Hall at Village of the Incarnate Word, 4707 Broadway, San Antonio

Our church is a church of word, worship, and service. As catechists and educators, we focus on the ministry of the word, sharing our beliefs and faith life with others. We have seen an updating of the Mass and our ways of worshipping God. Now it is time to look at how we serve in the name of Christ, especially the poor and most vulnerable. 

Pope Francis is inviting us to become a compassionate church, a church of mercy, car-ing for one another as Jesus taught. Our invitation is not so much about doing as about be-ing the faith-filled person Jesus calls us to be. Please join us as we look at the teaching of Pope Francis, reflect on our own faith journey, and talk about skills to bring this invitation to the people with whom we work.
