Pastoral associate graduates from FBI Citizens Academy

Juan Manuel Guzman, a pastoral associate at St. Mary Parish in Indianapolis, graduated on Oct. 22 from a Federal Bureau of Investigation Citizens Academy held recently in Indianapolis.

During the course, Guzman learned about the federal government, the responsibilities of the FBI and related agencies, and ways in which he can work in conjunction with these agencies for the good of the Indianapolis community.

The annual academy is limited to 20 participants recommended by FBI staff members.

“It is my hope to bring this valuable experience into my work in the archdiocese,” Guzman said. “It is here where my heart is, and I believe a collegial and close relationship with those men and women in the FBI who are working to keep us safe is crucial.” †
