PCL Day: November 6th

Bishop DeGrood is calling us to focus on the formation of lifelong Catholic missionary disciples in God’s love. What does this mean for parish formation programs? How can parishes implement Bishop DeGrood’s vision? Those are some of the questions we’ll explore at this year’s PCL Day. There will be Mass, presentations from the diocesan Discipleship & Evangelization team,  and discussion about how we can make Bishop’s vision a reality in your parish. Lunch provided. If you are a priest, deacon, DRE, YM, RCIA coordinator, or discipleship coordinator, get your tickets today!
