RMC Summit Next Steps

Evangelization Days

What it is: This half-day gathering will focus on how to create a culture of evangelization in your parish. Through prayer, conversation, and shared learning, participants will leave with practical first steps for fostering a culture of evangelization in their parish.

Who should go: All parishes are invited to send representatives who want to go deeper into evangelization efforts. Participants may include clergy, religious, staff, and volunteers who will lead the parish evangelization efforts.

Please save the date for your vicariate! Please note that if you are not able to make the gathering in your vicariate, you are most welcome to attend another Evangelization Day in a different vicariate. More details will be available soon.
