General Session Title: The Joy of the Gospel and the Vocation to Evangelizing Discipleship in a Time of Change Dr. Hosffman Ospino Catholicism is a faith tradition grounded in hope and joy. Yes, the hope and joy that come from being in relationship with Jesus Christ. How we live such hope will define the kind of families, communities, and commitments that we want. At a time of changes and transformations, the anxieties of our day demand that we live our Christian discipleship with hope and...

Discovering, Naming and Telling Your Faith Story Andre Lesperance Personal stories of experiencing the living God have always been among the most compelling and effective means of evangelization. This is true, perhaps more than ever, in today’s world; “People today put more trust in witnesses than in teachers, in experience than in teaching, and in life and action than in theories,” (John Paul II, Redemptoris Missio 42). In this practical workshop you will discover aspects of your own faith...

Reaching Out to Families Clark McFerren I propose to wrap the hour snuggly around the Bishop's three themes, but I expect the wrapping will be done with something elastic. I will try to emphasize the practical. Theme 1: Going (out of the comfort zone; meeting people where they are) So who are these families? So where are these families? What does reaching out look like? And, oh, why are we reaching out? (Let’s move that to the top of the list, shall we?) Any useful, practical answers to...

To do so he spent a vast majority of his time focusing on 12 people.

How to Evangelize Youth and Young Adults Katie Prejean McGrady Evangelizing Youth & Young Adults doesn't happen at an event, through a program, or because you have the catchiest flyer or Instagram posts. It happens through authentic relationships, honest conversations, and paying attention to their questions and concerns. Let's figure out how to do that.

Catholic Teaching on Sexuality and Sexual Identity Very Rev. Anthony J. Herold, VG and Rev. Thom Hennen “Is the Church’s teaching on sexuality and marriage good news? How do we engage folks who are experiencing same sex attraction? What exactly is the teaching of the Church on this issue? Undoubtedly, many of us know friends, loved ones, relatives and/or acquaintances who identify as LGBTQ. Many believe they have no place in the Church. Yet, our call to evangelize is meant to include all...

Reaching Out to the Nones – Those Who Have Left the Church Kevin Feyen We all probably know someone who was raised in the Catholic faith, but no longer identify as Catholic. And, when they leave, they tend to give up on religion all together... arguably making "none" the largest religious demographic in the US. Why is it that people who were once active in our parishes, in our programs, in our schools, in our communities no longer choose to identify as one of us? This breakout will address...

Creating a Culture of Relationship and Hospitality Andre Lesperance “An evangelizing community gets involved by word and deed in people’s daily lives,” (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 24). What comes to mind when you hear the word “hospitality” in connection with parish culture? Is it doughnuts and coffee after Mass once in a while? Or perhaps a handshake with a pew-mate before Mass begins? What if it didn’t need to be the job of a parish committee to help newcomers feel welcomed, because...

More
Ministering to Teens Today and a Paradigm Shift Pat Millea A phrase familiar to us in Iowa has applied to youth ministry in the Church for years: “If you build it, they will come.” Event-based youth ministry was successful in many ways for decades. But cultural shifts have demanded that we adopt a new paradigm for ministering to teens. That paradigm requires that all youth ministry be faithful, relational, and vocational. Parishes and diocesan organizations must seek out young people who are...

The Art of Accompaniment: Sharing that Christ is Alive Through Relationships Katie Prejean McGrady There are two questions the Church must currently answer: why aren’t people showing up anymore? What can we do to get them here? By approaching these questions with fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and a humble spirit, we can change the game and renew hearts and minds for Christ. The Synod on Young People in the Fall of 2018 provided quite a few ideas on how to do this, encouraging us all...
