Highlights from the Joy of the Gospel Convocation

Logo: Convocation of Catholic Leaders event, Orlando, Fla.A diocesan delegation led by Bishop Walkowiak took part in a national Convocation of Catholic Leaders: The Joy of the Gospel July 1-4. The thirteen member delegation gathered with delegations from other dioceses, Catholic Apostolates, and lay movements across the U.S. in Orlando, Fla. Around 3,000 people were expected to participate in this event.
The convocation was guided by the missionary vision of Evangelli Gaudium and centered on discussion about ways to bring the joy of the Gospel to the peripheries today. This is the first convocation to be held in more than one hundred years. 


The plenary sessions, Masses, keynote speakers, and evening prayer were recorded. View video from the convocation on the USCCB website. Catch up with convocation news and updates on social media: on the USCCB Facebook and Twitter, #CatholicConvo.
Please pray for Catholic leaders across our country as they return to their dioceses to carry out the mission and message of the joy of the Gospel.
