Evangelization & Missionary Discipleship

New Evangelization Summit

May 12 & 13, 2017 
Marian Catholic High School, Chicago Heights

As we begin our Renew My Church evangelization efforts, we want to bring together a broad representation of our archdiocese to pray, listen, and learn together and to begin a conversation about how to address evangelization efforts in the Archdiocese of Chicago as part of the Renew My Church Initiative. 
The New Evangelization Summit (NES) is broadcast from Ottawa, Canada, and we will participate as one of 35 host sites in North America. The NES is a global leader in providing thoughtful, powerful, and practical evangelization practices for the Catholic Church. During these two sessions, we will hear from experts, learn about best practices, be inspired, and engage our imaginations as we think about how we can evangelize more effectively. 
Participants will then be invited to gather again in a few weeks after the Summit to join a local conversation about their experience as well as discuss their own goals and local practices around the evangelization effort.
