+ FALL TRAINING EVENT IN CALIFORNIA will be held October 1 to 3, 2015.
Come October the grapes will be pressed and the vineyard leaves turning color. Nearby wineries in Lodi and Napa await you. Join us for the Catechumenate Training Institute “Go Baptize, Make Disciples” in Sacramento this October 1-3 and stay after for the wine.

Learn what it means to be a discipleship congregation at the upcoming institute being held at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Sacramento. Pastors, musicians, seminarians, and lay leaders are encouraged to attend this event offered by the North American Association for the Catechumenate (NAAC). It is being co-hosted by St. John’s Lutheran, Trinity Cathedral, and St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.

A team composed of Episcopalians, Lutherans, and Presbyterians will lead participants through an inspirational, practical three day training designed to introduce this ancient spiritual practice for youth and adults to their congregations. Congregational leaders already involved in the Catechumenate process are also encouraged to attend and find new ways to enrich this journey of faith formation.
