Arizona Diocese Annual Men’s Retreat



September 20, 2016


Dear Brothers in Christ,


Our annual Men’s Retreat, held at Chapel Rock in Prescott has become an important and growing part of our churches outreach.  I am always amazed at the hunger that many of my brothers have in sharing their spiritual lives within a safe and supportive environment.  Those who attend are consistently motivated to grow in faith and to invite others to join them.


This year the retreat will again be at Chapel Rock from Friday evening, November 18th to Sunday morning, November 20th.  We will hear presentations from several noted leaders: The Rev. Phil Shaw, Rector, Trinity Church in Kingman, Dr. Neil Stafford, Clinical Psychologist, and Jesse Villegas, Jr., Canon for Youth & Young Adult Ministries, on the subject of mentoring and the difference it can make in someone’s life.


Registration is available at Men’s Retreat.

I hope you will join me and the men of the diocese for this inspirational weekend.

V Bishop of Arizona

Public ministry in practice
by Lynette Wilson
How to conduct one-on-one conversations, how to run a meeting, how to listen and understand self-interest are just some of the skills learned by seminarians and others who train for community organizing.

In 2013, Church Divinity School of the Pacific began offering a weeklong course, “Organizing for Public Ministry,” in partnership with the Industrial Areas Foundation. IAF is a well-established network of faith and community-based organizations that trains leaders and empowers communities.
