Diocesan Ministry Day draws over 700

Over 700 people gathered at St. John’s Abbey and University in Collegeville Sept. 30 for Diocesan Ministry Day. The event began with Mass celebrated by Bishop Donald Kettler and 26 concelebrating priests from around the diocese. A keynote address by Laura Kelly Fanucci was followed by workshops and lunchtime conversations.

  • “In addition to growing our relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, work and sacrifice, we need to take advantage of educational opportunities such as today’s Diocesan Ministry Day to enable us to better reach today’s church and [address] world challenges,” Bishop Kettler said in his homily.
