If someone sees Father Ron Cloutier, who offices out of the fifth floor of the Harris County Jail, and the 22 deacons and 250 lay volunteers who help minister to the 18,000 incarcerated Catholics within the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, they will witness what Pope Francis describes as, “…ministers of the Gospel whose lives glow with fervor, who have first received the joy of Christ.”
St. Monica Catholic Church on Houston’s north side is only a few weeks away from opening a new state-of-the art food pantry and basic needs center — the culmination of dedication, determination and a dream that began 45 years ago.
On Saturday, Sept. 27, more than 500 Spanish-speaking Catholics from across the Archdiocese will gather for the 31st Annual Assembly of Hispanic Ministry at the Catholic Charismatic Center, 1949 Cullen Blvd., Houston. The event takes place from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
