Mount Angel Seminary has opened up its 5th Annual Alumni Priests Conference to all priests of the Diocese of Yakima. The conference, May 1-2, is titled "The New Evangelization: Does it make a difference in our parishes?" The featured speaker is Father Frank DeSiano, CSP, president of the Paulist Evangelization Ministries in Washington D.C.
Please see the attached brochure for details. The cost of the entire conference is $350. Priests serving in the Yakima Diocese who are able to attend the full conference are eligible for a reimbursement of $200 by the diocese. Priests who choose any of the other options are eligible for a reimbursement of 50 percent of the conference costs by the diocese.
We'll look for an opportunity at a future priests' gathering for those who attend to share their experience of the conference.
