New Evangelization Training Sessions

October 11, 12, & 13 – 2016

Once again in October we traveled to each vicariate to offer a continuing education opportunity for New Evangelization Teams in parishes. We continue in stage two of the pastoral plan by focusing on the domestic Church specifically through the lens of Pope Francis’ recent Apostolic Exhortation titledĀ Amoris Laetitia (On the Joy of Love).
