Dear Friends,

As the Coordinator of the Conference on Hispanic Ministries, I want to extend a second invitation to this collegial and informative conference.  Your spouse is also welcome to attend. We previously had sent a preliminary invitation to the conference, sponsored by the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin. The seminary continues in its goal of encouraging Hispanic ministries, especially in the Province 7 area of the Episcopal Church.

The conference will take place in Camp Allen, the Episcopal conference center located about a hour, northwest of Houston.  It starts with dinner on Sunday, August 12 and ends with lunch on August 15.  The focus of the conference is to offer some days of relaxation in a comfortable wooded area which also will feature some spiritual reflexion, in addition to the other sessions.

I urge you to register for this conference as soon as possible. I am attaching a registration form, a tentative schedule, and other information. My assistant, Mary Anne O'Brien, can help you with any of the conference details by email, or you can call me directly at 512.695.6696. We hope that you can join us in Camp Allen and be part of this clerical fellowship.

Thank you and blessings to you.
 The Rev'd Al Rodríguez
