2019 Rural Life Winter Seminar
The Salina Diocese Catholic Rural Life Commission continues to provide spiritual growth information and support to members of the Salina Diocese involved in Agriculture. In the past there were two key events that continue today and those were and are the celebration of Saint Isadore’s Day with blessing of flocks and fields with Mass and a social gathering. The other is the celebration of Rural Life Day when we honor family farms that have been in the family for over 100 years.
These two events move around the Diocese each year to make the attendance easier for all and to allow different Parishes to be highlighted in the celebrations. In 2017 CRL began a third event with the introduction of the Vocation of the Agricultural Leader workshop in Russell, KS. Many of those attending the workshop asked that we continue our focus on items discussed there. We have tried to do that with a late winter seminar each year since that time. Last year the seminar was in Manhattan, KS. This year we are very excited to continue the Late Winter Seminar by hosting it at St. Mary Queen of Angels Catholic Church, Russell, KS on March 2 nd . The event this year will begin with Mass at 9:30 celebrated by Bishop Gerald Vincke and followed by his presentation addressing the spiritual concerns and opportunities in our rural Diocese.
The day will conclude with a lunch served by the CYO students of Russell. This will be a good time to relax and visit with Bishop Vincke and all who have attended. We look forward to seeing you there. In order to have plenty of food and materials we ask that you make your reservation for this event by completing the form below.
