Deacon Charlie Echeverry, a deacon of the Diocese of Los Angeles, understands the beauty of embracing a diversity of gifts and expressions of those gifts in the Catholic Church. One of his goals is for others to recognize their own gifts and use them to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In this episode of our Napa Institute Conference Series, Deacon Charlie sits down with Dr. Richard Ludwick, president of University of St. Thomas-Houston, at the 12th Annual Napa Institute Conference in Napa Valley California. In a wonderful dialogue, they discuss why Deacon Charlie became a deacon, how deacons are meant to create bridges, and the magnitude of recognizing the richness of cultures in the Catholic Church and how they can only enhance our mission - in liturgy and in life.
