On February 7th the Diocese of Salt Lake City planned a day of formation with the topic “Growing as a Spiritual Leader.” One of our Resource Persons, Fr. Les Schmidt, a Glenmary priest, dedicated his time and facilitated this day of formation. Many of the participants included Directors of Religious Education and Youth Ministers. The Congar Institute strives to provide excellence in the formation of lay pastoral leaders and is pleased to advance its mission through events like this one. This day of formation ended with the celebration of holy mass and both the participants and Fr. Les were very pleased with the outcomes of the day.
