Report on USCMA 2009 Conference

Written by

USCMA Conference LogoMaryknoll Affiliates Matt Rousso and Jim Huck (New Orleans) did a workshop at this Conference. Maryknoll Affiliate Rachel Tomas Morgan (South Bend) and I were also there.

Over 200 missioners from the United States gather in New Orleans for National US Catholic Mission Association Conference. The 2009 Mission Conference: Behold I Create a New Heaven and New Earth: Seeing Mission with New Eyes was attended by over 200 participants from all over the US!  All who gathered in New Orleans were able to celebrate the life of mission and their own commitment to support their missionaries and to recall their own life in mission.

The Conference was sponsored by the US Catholic Mission Association located in Washington DC.  The US Catholic Mission Association has convened the Annual Mission conference since 1980. Members of the association and people interested in exploring the on-going trends of mission in the world and the US are invited and encouraged to attend.  This year’s conference had a very distinctive flavor due in large part to the warmth and hospitality of our site and Mission Office partners in New Orleans, LA.
