Faith Formation Conference set Nov. 21-22

The ninth annual Faith Formation Conference, an event that highlights faith development, will take place Nov. 21-22 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The Diocese of Oakland will join with the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the dioceses of Monterey, San Jose and Stockton to host the conference, whose theme is: Living the Gospel Joyfully/Viviendo el Evangelio con Gozo.

Wendy Scherbart, director of Catechetical Ministry for the Diocese of San Jose, said, "This two-day multicultural and multilingual event highlights the importance of lifelong faith development and is aimed at adults to enrich their faith and strengthen their knowledge, skills and commitment to be disciples in their Church and in the world."

More than 2,500 people are expected to come from all over Northern California to attend the 105 workshops to be offered in English, Spanish and Vietnamese and to visit more than 70 exhibits.
