New Evangelization Workshops

Registration is now closed for this event. If you would still like to attend, please call or email our office directly at or 804-622-5159.

As our parishes, schools, and campus ministries continue to creatively implement the diocesan pastoral plan for evangelization, “Encounter the Joy of the Gospel and Set the World Ablaze,” the Office for Evangelization provides an annual workshop to share ideas about how to best implement the plan locally.

These sessions are open to any individual working on an evangelization team or any parish who is currently interested in forming an evangelization team. The goal is to share practical tools and resources for use in the parish and to provide a forum to share best practices.

Each 3-hour session (held on a week night) includes a catered dinner and individual workshops where individuals can learn and share practical tools that can be implemented in the parish to further evangelization efforts.

Participants may register for any of the workshops below. Topics include:

  • Dynamic parish self-assessment
  • Building out a compelling parish program
  • Engaging families in small, medium, and large parishes
  • Working with a small group ministry
