Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
MADE FOR HAPPINESS will be an historic event in our diocese and it is my hope that it will inspire attendees to more deeply embrace their true identities as daughters and sons of God and, as a result, share the Gospel of Jesus Christ more freely and joyfully with those around them. Please join me, all the clergy and thousands of others from around our diocese for this defining moment in our Church!”
