Well, that sounds like a tall order, doesn’t it? Actually, you can put all these verbs into one: evangelize.
And you are an evangelist by virtue of your baptism. But how do you carry out the vision of evangelization in your home, in your workplace and, of course, among the members of your faith community, active or not active? Well, your friends at the Archdiocese and our friends in other ministries have planned a day that will help you to carry out your call to worship, witness, celebrate, receive and proclaim Christ’s love.
Mark this date – Saturday, Nov. 9 – on your calendar, your smartphone, your tablet…whatever you use to keep track of important events. The annual Adult Faith Formation and Evangelization Forum will take place that day at the McGinley Center on Fordham University’s Bronx campus.
Come and meet a top-notch roster of presenters in English and Spanish tracks, including Fr. Matt Malone, SJ, editor-in-chief of America Magazine (of papal interview fame): Dr. Colt Anderson, the dynamic dean of the Fordham University Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education; John Roberto, whose Lifelong Faith Associates can help you plan a dynamic adult faith program in your own parish; the international religious musician, Hermana Glenda; Fr. Lorenzo Ato, radio personality and assistant director of Hispanic Ministry at the Archdiocese; and too many more to list here.
Make plans to join us and discover what the New Evangelization means to you and the other adults of your parish. Read all about it here and register today. And invite others to join you. It’s what evangelists do!
