Free Webinar!!!

Loyola Press is offering a free webinar, hosted by Joe Paprocki, D.Min. The "7 Keys to Spiritual Wellness" webinar, featuring principles from Paprocki's new book, will explore 7 ways in which we can be renewed by the grace of the risen Christ. Paprocki's keys to spiritual renewal include the following:
  • See Yourself as You Really Are
  • Actively Seeking the Good of Others
  • Thinking Before Acting
  • Holding on Loosely
  • Recognizing and Setting Limits
  • Channeling, Nor Repressing, Your Desires
  • Unleashing Your Imagination

As we anticipate the celebration of Pentecost, this webinar will be an opportunity to truly renew our baptism and open ourselves up to the Holy Spirit who guides us in all we do. If you are a catechist, catechetical leader, pastoral minister, or someone simply looking for spiritual renewal, don't miss this opportunity be become more spiritually alive in the risen Christ.

Upcoming Evangelization Webinars

Paulist Evangelization Ministries is offering two online courses in April:
Faith That Engages: Why Do You Believe? April 16 - May 13 (4 sessions)
This four-session course, with Fr. Tony Krisak, explains why we need to develop new ways to talk about our faith and to explain to others why we believe. You mak know the faith, but can you explain it so others understand? The course also offers practical suggestions for how parishes can shape their current programs to reach seekers, those who have questions about human life. You will learn a way of sharing and explaining faith (often called apologetics) in a way that will help others see the enefit of faith and in a way that touches upon the longings of people in our culture.
Keys to Reaching Inactive Catholics April 16 - May 27
Over this six-week course, John and Therese Bocher will discuss ways to reach today's inactive, marginal and unchurched Catholics. They will explore six keys for develping a new model of everyday missionary outreach that goes beyond programs and relies on God's presence in each person's journey of faith.
