The 2018 Summit sponsored by the Diocese of Rapid City’s Office of Stewardship offers the opportunity to practice Welcome, Invitation and Formation.
This past weekend we had our Stewardship Training — Ambassadors for Christ. We had 8 priests and Deacon Zane Pekron that were able to participate in the Friday workshop and 60 parish leaders that came from 19 parishes from across the Diocese and the Rapid City Catholic Schools for the Friday evening and Saturday workshop.
This past week I have been calling pastors and pastoral leaders about our upcoming Stewardship Leadership Training on Friday and Saturday, June 15 and 16 at Terra Sancta.
Last week, Adam Johnson, a first-year theologian at St. Paul Seminary, was installed as a lector.
In last week’s musings, I pondered the power of an invitation and the fruits which come from being persistent in extending, always inviting others to become intentional disciples who joyfully, boldly and lovingly proclaim and live the mission of Jesus Christ.
