Bishop Cepeda – Conference Speaker

We were fortunate enoough to attend the Catholic Formation and Leadership Conference whose theme was “Holiness: A Call for every Christian.”  This confernce offered many workshops on topics such as, practical ways to pursue holiness in your personal life and ministry. Information was provided on how you can gain tools to discern how to be most effective in ministry; learn to address and avoid burnout in ministry; hear ways to inspire our youth to holiness; and much more. This conference lasted two days and the Eucharist liturgy was central to each day. We where honored to have Bishop Arturo Cepeda, a former priest from San Antonio and now the youngest bishop, as a guest and speaker.

I personally learned to discern my gifts in ministry and those areas that I could improve upon. It was very inspiring to learn about the new ways to spread God’s call to holiness which inspires others to answer his call. I gaind a lot of knowledge from the different exhibits, speakers and networking with other ministers in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. I also have gained a new sense of commitment and dedication to promoting Christ’s message just as Venerable Fulton Sheen was bold enough to start through media and technology.
