Their compulsion was the Great Commission: "go, make disciples!". Their propulsion was the Holy Spirit. Their impulsion was to share "the faith once for all delivered to the saints" with those who would listen.
Our Conference will begin on the historical trail, reviewing the great stories of these missionaries: apostles, prophets, preachers, evangelists, martyrs, confessors, ascetics. We will then sit at the feet of three parish priests who have, in their own ways, with their own gifts and talents, within their own towns and communities, catechized, baptized, preached, built, taught--in Colorado, California, and Idaho. What factors converged to cultivate the gospel in their parishes and towns? While there is no magic silver bullet answer, their labors, success and failures alike, are inspiring for us all. We'll conclude with a session by a seasoned pastor and priest, Fr John Maxwell, who is finalizing a book himself on Apologetics: how do we speak to the world – our world and your neighbors – today?
Join us for what will surely prove to be an enlightening and engaging conference with speakers from across the United States, and be inspired in your own ministry to walk as the North American Saints have walked. To serve and preach, to catechize and baptized, in the same Spirit that they did, to the Glory of God.
