Evangelization is not a dirty word.
When you take a look at your parish, would you say that the primary purpose of it is to evangelize? It should be.
When you look at the lives of most Catholics you know, would you say that they exist to evangelize? It should be.
Pope Paul VI explained that the Church
“exists in order to evangelize.”
Evangelization is the primary reason for her existence!
It’s not just one the things that the Church should do, it is THE thing she MUST do.
This one day training is based on "The E Word" (by Michael Marchand).
Participants will not only learn what evangelization is (and why it's important), but they'll get practical training on exactly HOW to share their faith.
You'll even get the opportunity to practice crafting and sharing your story with others.
We'll work with your parish to create a format that best fits in to the parish life of your community. Some potential ideas:
- A Saturday evening program that includes Mass and dinner.
- A stand-alone Saturday or Sunday afternoon event.
- Offer it as a multi-day parish mission.
- Build it into your weekly youth night with an added parent/adult component.
