Several times a year, the Office for Evangelization will offer Deep Waters nights to delve into professional/ministerial formation topics. These topics would include the “how to” of ministry. Deep Waters nights will be offered on a week night in each of the vicariates from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. We begin with Mass at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner and a guest speaker. All pastoral leaders, catechists, and youth workers are invited to attend.
Winter Deep Waters Topic: “Mind the Gap: Building Bridges in Ministry”
“I pray that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you.” -John 17:20-21
Christ’s prayer in the Gospel of John is that all people would be one. Yet, every parish community has gaps between various groups and entities: parish/school, age divides, Anglo/Hispanic, etc. This Deep Waters seminar will discuss how to first become aware of the gaps in a community and then present some ideas for how to build bridges to span the gaps.
This Webinar was led by Angie Pometto who serves as the Associate Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the Central and Western Vicariates. Angie shared about her experience in Indianapolis before coming to Richmond. During that time, she worked two part-time ministry jobs and attempted to bridge the gap between Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and Scecina Memorial High School, both on the east side of Indianapolis.
