SAN DIEGO — The diocese’s Hispanic Commission returns to in-person events with a two-night conference for families Aug. 9 and 10.

The Spanish-language conference, held virtually last year due to the pandemic, will feature two speakers. Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano will address this year’s theme, “The Mission: Sow with Love, Harvest with Joy.” And Dr. Irma Covarrubias-Lugo, a family medicine physician, will share the latest about the vaccines against the coronavirus.

The commission is made up of representatives of parishes that celebrate Masses in Spanish.

The conference will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Good Shepherd Church, 8200 Gold Coast Drive, in Mira Mesa. Tickets are $10 for both nights and may be bought at the door. Children 12 and under are free.

More information is available from Alejandra Diaz at (858) 490-8306 or adiaz@sdcatholic.org, and at sdcatholic.org/conferencia2021.
