We develop and equip evangelists who serve their parishes.
HOW WE SERVE
Our Parish Evangelization Support Team seeks to provide opportunities for Parish Evangelists that will enable them to encounter Jesus Christ, to grow as a community, and to open space for the Holy Spirit to renew parish evangelization structures. We do this through three key areas of responsibility.
Missio Day offer opportunities for shared life and prayer, with an emphasis on specific training for the common mission of evangelization at parishes. We welcome ALL evangelists – those serving youth, families, adults/young adults – to participate. Aug-Sept Misso Days are FREE; all others are $10.

The goal of Communio Groups is to foster community for mission through shared life, prayer, formation, and collaboration. These are small-group communities made up of 6-8 fellow evangelists who want to share life and prayer with one another, as well as share time for brainstorming, collaboration, mentoring and sharing resources. Groups meet at least once a month for 90 minutes.
There are 2 steps to sign up for a group:

The Re-Ignite Retreat invites all veteran parish evangelists (2+ years) to slow down, rest, and sit at the Master’s feet. During this two-day retreat, you will have the opportunity to encounter Jesus in His word and sacrament, receive spiritual direction, grow in fellowship, and be re-ignited in faith and fervor to return to the mission field.
