Discerning a Parish Vision (PDF)
product

 

It’s virtually impossible to become an evangelizing parish unless the parish operates within a common vision of who they are called to be. A common, articulated vision serves as a North Star, and gives you the ability to measure your progress in reaching the vision for your parish.

 

“Discerning a Parish Vision” outlines a process for doing just that. Over three sessions, parish leaders prayerfully discern their own parish’s unique vision for evangelization. The three sessions, each about 90 minutes, include:

 

  • Lectio Divina for Vision
  • Discerning the Vision
  • Drafting a Vision Statement

101 Ways to Evangelize: Ideas for Helping Fearless, Fearful, and Flummoxed Catholics Share the Good News of Jesus Christ
product

 

Available in print, ebook, or printable PDF editions.

 

The Church is calling Catholics to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to a world that desperately needs it. Parishes need to reach out to the wider community beyond their walls, and individuals need to become confident witnesses to the transforming love of Jesus Christ.

 

But what does this evangelizing mission look like for you and your parish? How can you begin? And how is this different from “Church as usual”?

 

This little book will help you imagine the answers to those questions with practical advice and creative ideas to get you started. Read the list of ideas, pray over them, and check off the ones that inspire you. Use these ideas as a starting point, modifying or developing them as necessary to fit your own mission field: your parish, family, workplace, and neighborhood. Then, go out and do it!
