Converging Roads has already impacted hundreds of doctors, nurses, catechists, and clergy through seven conferences offered between 2009-2013 and is now an initiative of The Foundation.
Converging Roads was founded in 2009 with the aim of expanding the pastoral initiatives of Most Rev. José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles.
