UD Ministry Conference a Great Success

November 5, 2010

Dallas, TX (Diocese of Dallas) - A new attendance record was set for the University of Dallas Ministry Conference held at the Dallas Convention Center on October 22-23. The fourth annual event drew more than 5,000 people, most of them ministry leaders from parishes throughout Texas and Louisiana.

Conference goers had the opportunity to hear internationally well-known speakers such as Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, Reverend Ignacio Larranaga and John Allen.  Speakers addressed topics in all areas of ministry such as youth and young adult, marriage, catechesis and social media/communications. 

The event was co-sponsored by UD, the Diocese of Dallas and the Diocese of Forth Worth.  Bishop Kevin J. Farrell expressed gratitude to those who attended, “Ongoing faith formation is vital for our ministry leaders to increase the knowledge and spirituality they pass on to the communities they serve.  I am very grateful that so many took the time out of their busy schedules to further hone their skills and gather as Catholics in prayer.” 

The bishop encourages even more people to plan to attend next year’s conference.
