Spring enrichment

Every year, the Diocese of Albany offers its Spring Enrichment program, designed to provide everyone with the opportunity to come together to find out more about their faith and to deepen the skills and understanding of individuals serving in catechetical, youth, liturgical, pastoral care and other parish ministries.

This year’s conference will run from Monday, May 14 to Thursday, May 17 at the College of Saint Rose in Albany. It includes 111 on-site, two hour workshops and courses. Interspersed with these workshops will be major presentations on spirituality, catechetics end evangelization. On Wednesday there will be two special presentations focusing on bullying and throughout the conference there an increased number of offerings on using technology in support of ministry.

Among the other sessions are Introduction to Social Justice, What the parables teach about social justice, and Faithful Citizenship in an election year: do’s and don’ts for Catholic Citizens and Churches.

The complete list of sessions, together with a registration form, is available here.
