Assembly 2020

Christianity spreads through the joy of disciples
who know that they are loved and saved.

Pope Francis

The Archdiocese of San Antonio said YES!

On Saturday, Nov. 7th, as participants of Assembly 2020, we reaffirmed our commitment to foster a Catholic Culture of Discipleship.

As we go forth from Assembly, our work as missionary disciples is just beginning. May our efforts to build a Catholic culture of discipleship be led by the parable of the good Samaritan.

Participate in our Follow-Up Discussion Sessions

Having heard our inspiring Assembly speakers, we ask ourselves in the spirit of those who were stirred in their hearts having heard Peter’s words at Pentecost, “ What are we to do?” (Acts 2:37) We invite you to join us at one or more of our post-Assembly events to delve into discussion and dialogue about the topics and issues surfaced by our speakers. In the words of Archbishop Gustavo in his recent pastoral letter, “Then our religious ardor … will allow diligence to become an active fire-like love, fueled by the beating heart of apostolic activity to make Jesus known” (51).
