One of the premier faith-based events that occurs each year in our local Church is the Archdiocesan Youth Conference, gathering between 2,800 and 3,000 high-school youth and the adults that minister to them in our parishes and schools.
In 2013, the Archdiocese requested that pastors and lay leaders at all 146 parishes take time to discern their communities’ unique needs and chart a five-year plan to live, share and nurture the faith — the three “pathways” to their pastoral planning.
The traditional and the modern met recently on the altar of St. John Vianney Catholic Church, one of the largest churches in the Archdiocese, as Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, pastor Father Troy Gately and the successor of St. John Vianney, Father Patrice Chocholski invited from France, blessed the new church construction.
This week is the summit of the Liturgical Year — the Easter Triduum. Across the world, from St. Peter’s Basilica to churches here in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, The Triduum begins with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday and ends with evening prayer on Easter Sunday.
