The convocation will open at 8:30 a.m. with Mass with Cardinal Wuerl and Bishop David Ricken. The keynote is scheduled for 10 a.m.

Three rounds of breakout sessions will cover such topics as ecumenism, the Eucharist, reality of human trafficking in Wisconsin, social communications, stewardship, evangelization, leadership skills, engaging children in a culture of distractions, end-of-life care issues, Mass attendance, pastoral plans, marriage and family, catechesis, cultural awareness and Catholic school vouchers.

The new evangelization will be discussed further in select workshops.

  1. How I wish I could be there, for when the question & answer period comes up I would like to respectfully ask His Eminence Cardinal Wuerl why he saw fit to discipline and humiliate a priest who very rightly refused Holy Communion to a lesbian Buddhist at a funeral Mass last March, 2012.

    Cardinal Wuerl has never attempted to right this terrible injustice done to the priest, even as he continues to give Holy Communion to public sinners like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden.
