150th Convocation is an opportunity for the leadership throughout the Diocese to envision ministry through a new lens, moving forward as a Church of missionary disciples rooted in the Joy of the Gospel. The new lens or pathway has as its foundation, for mission and ministry, the vision shared with us by Our Holy Father, Francis. It is a call to be missionary disciples who live out the Joy of the Gospel through encountering each other, contemporary society, and especially those on the periphery. This call to joy-filled missionary discipleship has an individual witness dimension in addition to a corporate or ecclesial dimension. All individual witness and corporate or ecclesial witnesses should strive to be joy-filled disciples living out or mirroring joy and discipleship. Convocation 150 is our opportunity to celebrate, affirm, and deepen our ministry to missionary discipleship rooted in the Joy of the Gospel.
25 delegates are invited to attend. The cost is $25 per person. Fr. Jim said St. Dennis reimburse money of those who attend, after the event.
Convocation 150 will take place on Saturday, November 3rd, at the Ocean City Convention Center in Ocean City, Maryland. Visit www.cdow.org to read more about the 150th Anniversary. More information in the next week or two.
