This summer, plan to renew yourself as a Beginning Experience team member or alumni to your ‘Call to Mercy’ by joyfully participating in workshops, tours, concerts, fellowship, the Eucharist and more! Help teenagers take advantage of the Young People’s Beginning Experience program running July 17 – 19 on the University of Portland campus.
Meet our Catholic bishop liaison to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Bishop Patrick Zurek from the Diocese of Amarillo, Texas. Dialogue with other team members and with your International Board of Directors. Our keynote speaker is Sr. Barbara Kennedy, OSM.
