Bishop Morales committed, from the beginning, to work hard to make the Diocese of Quincy prosper and to bring people in our communities to the knowledge and love of God. And it’s happening. The diocese doubled in size during his first three years as bishop.
With a deep passion to build up the Kingdom of God, the bishop loves helping start new congregations. We are all missionaries, and Bp. Morales is constantly reminding laity and clergy alike of that shared role.
His vision for the diocese is that its congregations would work as missionaries to bring hurting, broken, and searching people to faith in God. For Bp. Morales, making disciples is an imperative, not just a nice statement.
The strengths of the Diocese of Quincy are its history and roots, he says, and its new strengths are coming from the new people, congregations, and clergy flocking to the diocese.
