My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
In just sixteen days we will be celebrating the 138th Synod of the Diocese of Quincy. The theme for this year is Revival – Revive us.
I would like to ask you all, if you haven’t started yet, to begin praying that the Lord will pour out upon the Diocese the revival we need. May we look forward with hope to everything the Lord wants for us.
This Synod will be a time of fellowship, training, commitment and of taking seriously Jesus’ call to make disciples, to seek first His kingdom and above all, to ask the Holy Spirit to kindle in us the fire of His love. May He transform us all into missionaries, that we may announce the values of the kingdom to our society and witness it in our lives. May we encourage others to follow Christ as it is proposed in the Gospel.
May God keep and guard you always.
We will see you soon.
The Rt. Rev. J. Alberto Morales, OSB
