The Most Rev. John R. Manz, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, and a member of the USCCB's Committee on Migration and Refugee Services, will be visiting the Diocese of Yakima September 5-8, accompanied by Sr. Myrna Tordillo, MSCS, of the USCCB staff, and Sr. Karen Bernhardt, HM, national director of the Catholic Migrant Farmworker Network. This will be an opportunity for them to learn more about our Diocese and its ministry to our immigrant communities.
Priests, Deacons and their wives, and the Religious of the Diocese are invited to a welcoming reception and dinner on Wednesday, September 5, at the Pastoral Center in Yakima. We will begin with Evening Prayer in Mother Joseph Chapel at 5:30 p.m., followed by a half-hour social and dinner. The dinner will end with a roundtable discussion.
Please find attached below an interesting autobiography of Bishop Manz's work with migrants.
