Homilies and Key Presentations

 

As the Convocation was guided by the Holy Spirit and grounded in prayer, Holy Mass was at the centerpiece of each day and a form of Catholic prayer or devotion was featured each evening. Texts from the homilies and other key presentations can be found on this page. 

The texts are organized by day for each of the four days of the Convocation.  Refer to the Convocation Schedule for details on how these fit within the program.

DAY ONE (JULY 1, 2017) – THEME: UNITY

DAY TWO (JULY 2, 2017) – THEME: LANDSCAPE & RENEWAL

DAY THREE (JULY 3, 2017) – THEME: WORK & WITNESS

DAY FOUR (JULY 4, 2017) – THEME: A SPIRIT OF MISSION
