Presentation: “Looking Forward: Ministry Preparation for Priests
in the Church of the 21st Century”

Ministry in the life of the Church during the past half century has evolved and developed according to the conditions of the people being served and the culture in which it exists. Since Vatican II, awareness of the close connection between Church and society has called forth creative response from priests and others serving the needs of the faithful. This talk examines the requirements of preparation for priests who will serve the Church as it exists in reality these days and also take into account the impact of secular culture on the Church today.  Among the questions to be explored are: What are the realities of the present day and what changes are ongoing or likely to affect ministry in the future?   What is happening to the strength of Catholic identity and church attendance in recent years? On the whole, is polarization a factor among parishioners, priests, and lay ministers? What shifts in parish life have taken place recently?

International Priests Serving our Multicultural Church”

Biography: Most Rev. Arturo Cepeda, S.T.L., S.T.D.

Bishop Jose Arturo Cepeda Escobedo, STL, STD, 41, was born in San Luis Potosi, SLP, Mexico on May 15, 1969, to Jose Cepeda and Maria del Socorro Escobedo. He received his elementary and high school education in Catholic schools in San Luis Potosi under the direction of Hermanas and Hermanos Josefinos.

Cepeda then completed a year of spiritual formation, followed by philosophy studies at Seminario Arquidiocesano Guadalupano Josefino in San Luis Potosi. After moving with his family to San Antonio, Texas, Cepeda continued his seminary studies at Our Lady of the Lake University, later earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in religious studies with a minor in psychology from the College Seminary of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Returning to San Antonio’s Assumption Seminary, Cepeda received a Masters of Divinity degree and was ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop Patricio Flores on June 1, 1996, at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas.

After earning a Master of Arts degree in Biblical theology from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio while assigned as parochial vicar of San Antonio’s San Fernando Cathedral, Cepeda was asked to study at St. Thomas Aquinas “Angelicum” Pontifical University in Rome, where he was awarded a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL) and a Doctorate in Sacred Theology (STD), defending his dissertation in Spiritual Theology in 2005.

In April 2011, Pope Benedict XVI named Cepeda as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit. One month later he was ordained by Archbishop Allen Vigneron, becoming the youngest bishop in the United States at age 41.

Bishop Cepeda serves as episcopal vicar and regional moderator for the Northwest Region of the archdiocese.  He is also the episcopal liaison to the NFPC.

Presentation: “Re-configuring the Priesthood in Times of Epochal Change”

The ministerial priesthood is at the forefront of ecclesial reform today in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council. Pope Francis has vigorously taken up the mantle of reform insisting on one common identity for all the baptized, namely, that of “missionary disciples.” The ministerial priesthood is thus being invited to develop spiritually and to reconfigure itself in ways that reflect its missiological and evangelizing character in a time of unprecedented “epochal” change. With more than forty years of background and service in the U.S. Church as pastor, writer, and theologian–and building on the NFPC’s central role in the lives of priests and the local church over five decades– Father Deck will seek to illuminate the nature and implications for the ministerial priesthood of the emerging vision of the priesthood suitable for an extroverted Church that is at once evangelizing and being evangelized, and siempre en salida, that is, “always reaching out.”
