You Too Go into My Vineyard - A Look at the Role of the Laity in the Church

The 10th Annual Convocation of the College of Fellows


Please join us for a 2-day conversation among lay and religious of all backgrounds. Together we will take a look at Blessed John Paul II’s Cristifideles Laici. We’ll discuss how it has or has not been heeded and identify ways in which we, as the body of Christ, can answer it today.

RSVP on this page for either or both days. Please include a name for any guests you are RSVPing for so we may provide a nametag for all who attend.

Very Rev. Bishop Jaime Soto, Diocese of Sacramento
