Attendees were from many dioceses in the southern part of Province 8--including San Diego, Los Angeles, San Joaquin, California, and Northern California. Two Integrity members joined us from the Diocese of Rio Grande in Province 7, where they are eager to make a difference.
Action plans were initiated and suggestions made for how we can make future workshops even better.
Here’s what participants said about the San Diego workshop:
"I really enjoyed the camaraderie, the networking and the opportunity to brainstorm with other nation and local leaders."
"I am very interested in the BOL concept as an organizing strategy."
"This was incredibly worthwhile, thank you all."
"I was really pleased about organizing around real issues and the whole process of 'graceful engagement'."
"The presenters were great. I thank Integrity for developing this training."Several more workshops have been scheduled during the summer….
