Clergy members of the Diocese of San Diego gather for the annual clergy conference at Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in Temecula. Our theme this year is Being Made New, as we welcome our new bishop and get to know one another better.
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Rev. Hannah Wilder via her mobile phone: 619-200-5036.
Clergy Listening Session
On Monday evening, we will participate in a listening session for clergy, facilitated by Susan Czolgosz, a consultant for faith-based organizations. Ms. Czolgosz is skilled at helping dioceses identify strengths as they seek to be relevant in a diverse culture. As I invite our diocese to move forward in visioning and strategic planning, I am interested to know your thoughts, hopes and concerns for our diocese.
On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, we will welcome Sarah Stearns, Ph.D. and a team of three consultants who will introduce us to VISIONS, a multi-cultural approach to supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in our diocesan community.
On Tuesday evening, we will gather for a fireside chat. This will be a time for you to ask questions of Bishop Susan and for clergy members to engage in meaningful conversation.

O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquility the plan of salvation; let the whole world see and know that things which were cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new, and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
