Diocesan Council, the annual gathering of the diocese, is held every February at alternating locations within the diocese, the main locations being San Antonio, Corpus Christi, McAllen, and San Marcos. A church within the diocese "hosts" Council, and the congregation facilitates volunteers to work closely with the diocesan office to pull all the details together. For more information as each Council is planned, visit the official Council website at http://council-dwtx.org.
