Merry Christmas


Dear friend of the Congar Institute,


This Christmas season we are once again reminded of what it is all about:

 dec23“The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord” (Luke 2:10-11).


As we at the Congar Institute work to proclaim good news of great joy for all people, we too have good news to share….

Good News! We facilitated a course on Canon Law for Lay Ecclesial Ministers for the Diocese of Salt Lake. (November 2013)

Good News!  We assisted the Archdiocese of Portland with their Spanish-language Lay Ministry Formation Program. (December 2013)

Good News! We provided a day of spiritual formation for lay leaders in St. George, UT (December 2013)

Good News!  We are helping to plan the National Hispanic Ministry Conference, Raíces y Alas/Roots and Wings. (October 2014)

Good News!  We joyfully anticipate our Hispanic Pastoral Lay Leadership Workshop in the Dioceses of Fort Worth, Texas and Raleigh, North Carolina. (January, February and March 2014)

The Good News is abundant!  Look for our January Newsletter for details.

May you be blessed abundantly this Christmas season and may God grant you hope, joy and love in the coming year!


Fraternally yours in the Word Incarnate,

Fr. Wayne Cavalier, OP, PhD           Alejandro Siller, MAS              Mrs. Lizett Farias
