The Catechetical Corner
Congress Volunteers 2022
This coming October 7, 8, and 9 we will once again be blessed to be able to offer our Diocesan Congress again for the first time since before the pandemic. Click on the link for more information: Diocese of Fresno Congress and Youth Day 2022
The Diocesan Congress is an event and opportunity for formation and gathering for all the faithful across our Diocese and beyond. In the past, many have believed that it is only an event for catechists or ministry leaders but given the diverse topics and sessions that are offered, along with Holy Mass on behalf of our bishop, it is really an opportunity for gathering, formation, and worship for all who wish to attend.
But with any great event comes a great necessity, for helping hands, for VOLUNTEERS! I have been blessed once again this year in coordinating the volunteers that support the process of this event during its three-day span starting with a Friday which focuses on administrators within a parish, congress gathering which is on a Saturday and ending on Sunday with Youth Day. This is an event that cannot take place without the help and support of individuals that are willing to give of their time and talents in serving the people of our diocese in one of the biggest events that we offer.
