San Fernando Regional Congress theme: 'Embrace God's Call to Generosity'

Dear friends,

It is with great anticipation that I introduce to you the San Fernando Regional Congress theme for 2011: "Embrace God's Call to Generosity."

As laborers in God's vineyard, we know the vastness of God's love for us, the challenge of the acceptance of God's mercy for ourselves and others, and the reality of our inability, at times, to know that God's ways are beyond our own.  The readings of this 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time remind us that the Lord is near, and offer us mercy and compassion.

You are invited to gather as a community of believers on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011. You may choose three workshops. Consider where you feel you are most called to learn more about your relationship with our God's generosity, as well as where you may serve generously in an area of ministry.

I look forward to walking with you on this day to hear where and how we are all called to "Embrace God's Call to Generosity."

— Bishop Gerald Wilkerson,
auxiliary bishop,
San Fernando Pastoral Region
