MAI hosts Called and Gifted Workshop: Discern your spiritual gifts! What is your vocation? How can you better serve Jesus Christ and His Church? God is calling you to a unique purpose in life, a work of love that only you can do. Come and begin to discover your part in His plan! You have received specific gifts, working through the grace of Baptism and Confirmation, for the ways God intends His love to reach others through you. Come and discover what these gifts are! The Called & Gifted Workshop is a two-day live presentation explaining the Church’s teaching on the laity and lay apostleship, the nature of spiritual gifts and one’s particular vocation, and how to undertake the process of discernment. The workshop will begin at 7:00pm on Friday, April 1, 2016 and continue through Saturday until 4:00pm. It will be held at Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church, 15415 Red Robin Road, San Antonio, Texas 78255.

Marriage Forum Continued: A follow-up event was held to complement the prior marriage forum at Our Lady of the Atonement, which was called “ONE MAN, ONE WOMAN. Is there still a case for traditional marriage?” Thanks to everyone who attended and supported this event. In light of the continuing interest in the subject of same-sex marriage, David Delaney and Michael Dunnigan returned to Atonement to answer additional questions from the moderator and audience. Richard Reyna again was the moderator. This event took place at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 at Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church, 15415 Red Robin Road, San Antonio, Texas 78255.
One Man, One Woman: Is there still a case of traditional marriage? This event met on June 25th, 2014 in San Antonio for a very important Marriage Forum cosponsored with the St. Joseph Foundation. Marriage and family are the most fundamental social institutions for the Church and society. A flourishing society requires flourishing families. A society that has lost its understanding of authentic marriage becomes ever more resistant to evangelization. For this reason, marriage and family is a central concern for MAI.
