Thank You Congress Volunteers and Participants!!  

Last weekend, October 7, 8, and 9, we were blessed to once again be able to offer our Diocesan Congress and Youth Day after not being able to do so since 2019. It was an amazing and enthusiastic atmosphere as hundreds of laity along with some Religious and clergy were able to once again gather and celebrate the word of God in formation, worship, and gathering.
