What stands out about my experience at the Convocation was having Msgr. Jim King as part of my discussion group. He has such a depth of knowledge, understanding and experience of pastoral work in the parish. He was very attentive to our group and wanted everyone to give their input in the discussions. I also enjoyed having Fr. Stephen as part of our group. He gave insights that priests also struggle, and we need to pray for them.
I saw the Holy Spirit move in the convocation by the talks that the presenters gave. They were very encouraging and helped to discern our missionary discipleship. Also praying before each group session and being able to attend Mass.
I began to see things differently when Fr. Matthew gave his talk and how it isn't complicated to be a missionary disciple and joyful it can be. I liked his theme of the presentation. Going further and faster with fewer things..., that says things can be simple. Also, Paco would say in his presentations that we are not alone. Our Lord is with us.
I am very encouraged to speak about Jesus to someone on a one-to-one basis and how joyful it is
