We both felt honored and grateful by the invitation by Bishop Oscar Cantu of the Diocese of Las Cruces to visit his diocese on September 25 and meet with him and some members of his formation leadership team. The purpose of our visit was to inform him about the mission of the Congar Institute and the formation services we offer to Mission Dioceses, and to listen to his diocese’s present formation needs.
We felt welcomed and with the experience of an open dialogue that made us feel we were all focused on learning from each other and to find ways together on how we may better respond to the lay ministry formation needs in the Diocese of Las Cruces. A written proposal from our Institute was submitted to Bishop Cantu for his consideration and review.
