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.
