A Day of Recollection for Pastoral Teams

“I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing.” – Luke 12:49

Day of Recollection for Pastoral Teams of the Diocese of San Jose on our Foundation Day

January 27, 2015
Our Lady of Refuge Parish, San Jose

Thank you to the more than 300 of you leaders for a Spirit-inspired day of recollection on evangelization.  The witness testimonies, presentations, table dialogue, group conversation and prayer fueled the flame of the divine fire that Christ has instilled within each of us.  We encourage the dialogue to continue in your pastoral team.

Facilitator: Fr. John Hurley, CSP, former Executive Director of Evangelization for the USCCB. 
Planned by: Diocese of San Jose’s Office of Evangelization and Office for Parish Services
