Over 100 members of the Charismatic Renewal group at St. Ann Parish, Carthage, MO, recently enjoyed a day of renewal and worship at Trinity Hills, the diocesan center for prayer, service, and Christian formation. The July 27-28 Family Camping Retreat was a summer opportunity to celebrate faith in God and share food, prayer, recreation (including swimming in the James River and a parade for children), and worship complemented by festive music. Many camped on the grounds, in the arena, or utilized the St. John Vianney guesthouse and residence for their overnight stay.

Bp. James V. Johnston has begun a process to Discern and Proclaim a Mutually-Shared Vision and set Diocesan Priorities for the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau. A diocesan advisory team has been assembled to walk this journey with Bp. Johnston. The process is facilitated by the Catholic Leadership Institute and will have a major impact on the diocese.

“We will be meeting for a full year, but a critical part of this process will involve the participation of everyone in the diocese,” Bishop Johnston said. This will primarily take place in the form of a series of listening sessions that will occur during the months of Sept.-Nov. across the diocese. Read more
