Our Church on Journey: Encounter, Listen, Discern
It is derived from Pope Francis’ homily at the opening Mass of the Synod on Synodality. In this address, the Pope speaks to the Gospel passage Mark 10:17 and offers that like Jesus who was on a journey, our God is one who travels with us throughout history. He notes that Jesus encounters the man and listens to his question and then he helps him to discern the answer.
Come listen to our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Brett Salkeld, Feature Speaker, Dr. Anne Jamieson, participate in the annual Mass with Bishop Wayne Lobsinger, sign up for some amazing workshops and enjoy the wonderful music and singing arranged by our Liturgy Committee!
We are excited and looking forward to seeing our community come together in-person! Thank you to our WFMP Planning Committee for making it all possible.
Thanks to Sponsors!
