Bishops, priests and deacons together: Brooklyn’s clergy convocation

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/17/12

Just got back from the second-ever joint clergy convocation for my diocese—a remarkable gathering of bishops, priests and deacons.  (Shown above: the cover for the prayer booklet, featuring an image of the three levels of Holy Orders.) There was a healthy turnout—easily, a couple hundred clergy gathered under one roof—and a good deal of camaraderie and carbohydrates (dinner was involved).  It was organized as part of the Sacred Heart Institute, the trailblazing new collaboration between the Dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre and the Archdiocese of New York.

Topping it off was a beautiful, challenging talk by Deacon James Keating (below) that touched on obedience, listening, marriage and how all this contributes to contemplative homiletics.

It was a great night, and a wonderful opportunity to break bread with our brother clergy.
