United as one on a virtual platform for Assembly 2020

Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS, invites clergy, consecrated women and men, Catholic school teachers and lay people from across the archdiocese to unite on a virtual platform. Join us as we work to strengthen, renew and celebrate our Catholic identity to witness a Culture of Discipleship.

Assembly 2020 on Saturday, November 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., is a remarkable opportunity of evangelization at this difficult time. Attend Assembly and walk away knowing that Christ is alive, filling us with hope and leading us to connect with those who feel disconnected from the church.

Assembly continues to be the largest gathering of Catholics in the local Church. This year in a virtual format, it will feature high-quality speakers, Mass with the archbishop, and reflection on our call as missionary disciples.

In an effort to reach people within and outside the archdiocese, registration is complete free this year thanks to the generosity of Archbishop’s Appeal donors.

Assembly is an annual gathering in which Archbishop Gustavo celebrates the beauty of the Roman Catholic faith with the people of God in the 19 counties that make up the archdiocese. This year’s theme is Sent by the Spirit: Building a Catholic Culture of Discipleship.
