Ministry Days 2014 - Are Your Ears Ringing?

“The LORD said to Samuel: I am about to do something in Israel that will make the ears of everyone who hears it ring.” 1 Samuel 3:11

Following Jesus as a disciple in our culture requires the ability to deeply listen for the call of God in our lives.  Are the people you serve too busy and too distracted to hear what Jesus is asking of them? Our ears should be ringing with the direction, support and encouragement of our Father, but instead, our ears are filled with other voices, ones that do not satisfy; they leave us empty, anxious and alone.  How can we, as individuals and as communities, connect better with Jesus, avoid the distractions, and receive the message of joy and hope that he is sending us?  Find out!  Join us for Ministry Days 2014.

Ministry Days is the largest gathering of ministers, catechists and Catholic school teachers in the Diocese of Sacramento. The event is an excellent opportunity to network with others who serve our parishes and schools.

Join us for both or one of the days of the conference!
We look forward to seeing you there!
