Almighty God, ever faithful to Your word,
A message from the Bishop
2018 campaign is underway.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mystical Rose,
A message from Bishop Berg
Greetings, Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
As I write this, we just received the first real snow of the winter here in Pueblo, where we are presenting the annual Youth Fest for middle school and high school students over the weekend. I have recently returned from visiting many of you all over the diocese, as several of the Catholic Pastoral Center (CPC) staff and I traveled throughout the diocese for our annual DMF tour. However, this year’s tour was radically different, for the focus of our presentation was to share details of the new diocesan strategic plan and the restructuring of the CPC now in progress, bringing the new strategic plan into effect. This is an important development, as we are taking concrete steps to move our diocese forward into the future as intentional disciples of Jesus Christ!
Last year we began this preparation with the Study Days conference given by Sherry Weddell on Forming Intentional Disciples in May, 2017. We will now moving to build on that foundation through the 4 Levels of Happiness program. Encouraged and guided by Deacon Dan Leetch, this program of unifying spiritual formation will reach into the parish level and begin to build a more intentionally enlightened approach to one another in light of our goals. Those who have been initiated into the 4 Levels have expressed a resounding, "Yes! This works!" I am personally excited that it has changed my outlook and response to the mission. The 4 Levels will positively bring a unifying tool into basing the mission in solid Catholic theology and Christian vocabulary.
There is more excitement to come! In Father Matt Wertin’s tour preview of The Amazing Parish we see the framework for the upcoming Diocesan Convocation which will be held in Pueblo this May 7 to 9. We will begin to develop and change our minds around forming intentional leadership at the parish level, in light of our vision and common heritage. This process of The Amazing Parish is now in place at the CPC.
In my travels I have been blessed to spend time with students in our schools during Catholic Schools Week, and this weekend with our youth in Pueblo. Our youth are the future of our Church, and spending time in their world is a joy and gives me great hope. The diocese has now made the commitment to assign Father Carl Wertin as fulltime vocation director, which brings him into fuller contact with our youth, to encourage them in their discernment of their life vocations. He is now available to visit your parishes to preach about vocations. The new strategic focus on youth and family will bring more gifted, committed people together in this most important direction as our plans continue to unfold. This is dramatically coming to fruition in the preparation for the regional V Encuentro, where our delegation and I will meet at the regional conference in Phoenix in the next step of formation of a national plan for Hispanic ministry for the USCCB.
Please know always of my prayers for you, your families and your concerns. May you know joy and blessings through this Lent and this coming Easter season!

love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one
another without complaining. As each one has

the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God
may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong
glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
