This year's theme is "Living in a Missionary Key", reflecting on Pope Francis' Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel). Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, will be our Keynote Speaker.

You will be assigned a chapter to read when you register for the Mission Congress. There are 5 chapters to Evangelii Gaudium. Reading the chapter prior to the Mission Congress will allow you to share any insights, and any applications to the pastoral life of the Archdiocese and its role in evangelization. Each small group will present key insights from their discussion and any recommendations to be passed along to the Archbishop and the Ministry Team.

You may download a copy of Evangelii Gaudium from the Vatican website.

Cost of the Mission Congress is $10 per person, payable in advance to: Society for the Propagation of the Faith, 20 Archbishop May Drive, St. Louis, MO 63119. Please write on the check memo: Mission Congress. Registration is due by March 26, 2014. Please feel free to share this information and invite others from your parish or community.
