Here’s a great big shout out to all the wonderful folks who attended the catechetical conference in the Diocese of Brownsville, TX, this past Saturday. The conference was organized by Mr. Luis Espinoza, the Director of the Office of Catechesis, who chose to use the title of my book, Under the Influence of Jesus, as the theme for the conference. I was honored to deliver the English keynote and 2 breakout sessions at the conference and I met so many great catechetical ministers who are indeed “under the influence” of Jesus! Thanks to all for such a wonderful experience! Here are some pics:
Imagine how surprised and delighted I was to see attendees wearing “Under the Influence of Jesus” t-shirts!!!
Here is Bishop Daniel Flores delivering remarks at the end of the day: “If you want to identify with Jesus, you have to identify with the people Jesus identified with.”
Here is my colleague and friend Martin Lopez delivering a breakout session on Loyola Press resources.
Here is my friend Adrian Alberto Herrera, of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, delivering a breakout session sponsored by Loyola Press. Adrian also did the Spanish keynote on Under the Influence of Jesus!
Here I am with the team for that day: Martin Lopez, Adrian Alberto Herrera, Rita Martinez, and yours truly. What a team!
