COPS/Metro, San Antonio Bishops Build on Momentum from RTS Convocation
On Saturday April 15th, over 200 people from 41 institutions and 6 deaneries participated in 'Recognizing the Stranger' parish leadership training in collaboration with the Archdiocese of San Antonio. The session was conducted in English and in Spanish, and included 15 clergy and two bishops. Spanish speaking leaders expressed a strong desire to organize their parishes.
A major theme developed over the course of the sessions was that the Church is not a parking lot and that Mission is key element of the one's faith. Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller told participants that the Church needs their leadership because clergy cannot do what lay leaders can.
