The Institute for Pastoral Ministry’s logo bears the words: “Growing in Faith, Preparing to Serve.” That sums up the mission of the Diocese of Orange ministry, which will be celebrated Oct. 14 at a diocesan-wide event, intended to help parishioners deepen their faith and mobilize to serve.
The annual all-day event at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana will celebrate the theme: Encounter, Connect, Evangelize. Speaking to that theme will be keynote speaker Fr. Greg Boyle, S.J.
Attendees will include more than 1,500 leaders, ministers, volunteers, parish staff and youth leaders from the four language communities: English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Korean.
Register by phone or by mail only. Call (714) 282-3078 for more information. Deadline for registration is Sept. 18.
