Nearly 130 lay Catholic ministry leaders in the Diocese of Salt Lake City are receiving an outstanding education right in their own diocese through programs designed specifically for their needs by the Congar Institute for Ministry Development. The Salt Lake Diocese is so grateful to the Congar Institute that for the past two years our friends there have held an annual fundraiser to support our work there and elsewhere. They recognize that many dioceses are like theirs—not rich in financial resources, but blessed with growing Catholic populations, and not always located in metroplexes, but in isolated geographic regions of the USA.
The lay ministers in the Diocese of Salt Lake City are planning this year’s annual fundraiser “Gala Congar” in Salt Lake City on August 17, 2013. Their goal is to help us raise funds to support our efforts to provide excellent education/formation to lay leaders in under-served dioceses.
We are deeply thankful to all of those who, in some way or another, are actively supporting this fundraiser. With gratitude for your interest in and support of our mission, we invite you also to participate in this worthy endeavor and hope you consider making a donation to this fundraiser.
