On March 19, the Diocese of Corpus Christi will host the first-ever, one-day Amazing Parish conference at the Omni Hotel in Corpus Christi. The conference will equip parish leadership teams to better lead their parishes. “Since the beginning of my ministry in the Diocese of Corpus Christi, I have tried to focus attention on reinforcing and invigorating parish life,” Bishop Michael Mulvey said. By the end of the conference, participants will have a clearer sense of where they want to lead their parish. Bishop Mulvey requests that every pastor attend and bring a team of 2-4 parish leaders.
