2017 Priest Convocations

Please pray for the AMS priests who will gather across the nation and in Rome in August-October under the direction of Archbishop Broglio for the biennial priest convocations.

The theme of this year’s convocations is “Current Moral Questions.” The main presenter will be the Reverend Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D., Director of Education and Ethicist at the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia, PA. In addition, participants will be treated to a session on Building Effective Music Ministries through Coaching and Collaboration, updates in Canon Law, a renewal of child-protection training, and AMS news.

These gatherings will be a periods of prayer and reflection, dialogue, face-to-face meetings with Archbishop Broglio, and informative presentations from guest speakers and clergy of the AMS. The priests will draw on their convocation experience, learning, and inspiration to hone their vocational and pastoral attention as they embark on another two years of priestly service to the men, women, and families in the U.S. Armed Forces.
