A delegation from CMSM recently participated in the national gathering called by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops celebrating their centenary and affirming the importance of the ongoing development of ministry competency in the U.S. church. Held from July 1-4, 2017 in Orlando, Florida, the “Convocation of Catholic Leaders: The Joy of the Gospel in America,” brought together more than 3,100 people, mainly laity but also more than 150 bishops and 500 priests and deacons.
A tour de force was the final address by Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the papal nuncio to the United States. He called the gathering “a new Catholic moment, a privileged time to be renewed for the mission of evangelization in this country.”
