#NCCL2017 - Dallas
The above photo is just a few of the 32 Catechetical Leaders from our Diocese that participated in NCCL May 21-25, 2017.  I think we were all richly blessed by the experience and I am grateful to God that we had the opportunity to attend.
We are preparing to have an online gathering on August 3rd from 10:00 -11:00am with those of you who attended the Conference.  
The goal will be to unpack the experience and identify some action steps that we may want to take as a Diocese to promote Transformative Leadership.  We will be using Zoom as the online platform for our discussion.  You can learn more about Zoom by clicking HERE.  We will be sending invites to all who attended NCCL.  
If you didn't attend the Conference, but would like to participate in the discussion, please email  and he will send you an invite.
