An Important Message from Father Kuroly
The Spiritual Director of the Jornada Movement is in charge of the pastoral care of Jornadistas. This responsibility has been entrusted to him under the authority of the diocesan bishop. The Spiritual Director, whose ministry of Christ he is called to share,carries out these duties by teaching, sanctifying and ruling with the cooperation of the Equipo Base and other delegates, and with the assistance of all members of the Jornada Movement.
I am proud to continue to be your Spiritual Director. I ask for your prayers as I strive to serve you as your priest, brother and friend.
Our movement continues to grow, and the needs are more evident now than ever. As I fulfill my other pastoral duties, I am happy to announce that deacons from our diocese have accepted the role as Jornada Chaplains
The primary responsibility of the Jornada chaplain is to provide spiritual support to Jornadistas. This involves bringing a 'faith-presence' in various Jornada events and activities.
This role of chaplain will vary including but not limiting to assisting on Wednesdays,leading prayers at events, a presence at Jornada weekends and retreats, meeting Jornadistas on an individual basis, and working closely with the spiritual director.
This service is an expression of our deep concern and love for each Jornadista so that each person who calls themselves a J knows they are cared for and loved.
Our Chaplains are:
Deacon Leroy Branch
Deacon Albero Cruz
Deacon Carlos Garcia
Deacon Antonio Gonzalez
Deacon Franklin Munos
I am sure you will join me in thanking God for there willingness to serve and offer our prayers as they take on this important role.
