From the Pastor
2019 Catechetical Congress10-13-2019Fr. Dan Connealy
Somehow we are midway through October! The Lord is good and there are many exciting things going on here at St. Joan of Arc and in the Diocese of Phoenix. One exciting opportunity is the 2019 Catechetical Congress. On October 26 catechists and other Catholics desiring to grow in the missionary spirit are gathering downtown for a day of prayer and talks. The keynote speaker is a man named André Regnier, the founder of a missionary group called Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) and author of the book Clear and Simple: How to Have Conversations that Lead to Conversion. The cost for this day of prayer and talks is $35 (does not include lunch) until October 23 ($40 after) and you can find the link to register at dphx.org/childrens-catechesis/congress/. This is an amazing opportunity to hear one of the most effective evangelists in the Church today and grow in your missionary zeal.READ MORE
