Welcome to the School of Evangelization series, “Kickstart Evangelization in Your Parish…it’s easier than you think!” At the conclusion of these seven sessions, it is our prayer that every participant will be more deeply rooted in their faith and have greater confidence in their ability to share that faith with others. This foundational series seeks to clearly express the Christocentric core of evangelization, assisting each participant in their goal to transform the culture in their life and parish toward a culture of ongoing conversion, formation, and missionary discipleship.
All sessions, with links and materials, will be emailed to you on a weekly basis starting June 7. Please watch your Inbox and Spam folders.
