2019 Discipleship Seminar
October 22nd, 2019
Held at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay
8:30 AM - 3:45 PM
Free Registration is Requested
To walk with Jesus is to experience healing and is essential in forming missionary disciples.
Does Jesus still heal today? How can our wounds, struggles, and experiences be at the service of others?
During this Discipleship Seminar, Fr. Mathias Thelen and Patrick Reis of Encounter Ministries will facilitate a one-day Encounter School of Healing. In an effort to continue our journey as “Disciples on the Way,” Bishop Ricken has asked all parish staff to attend this event, along with the entire Diocesan curia, in an effort to continue our journey of discipleship. Key volunteer leaders, council members, and anyone else involved in parish ministry are also invited to attend, so bring your whole team for a day to be restored and renewed. (Staff includes those paid 10 hours or more, or anyone else that you consider to be on your staff.)
No cost to attend.
