Parish Evangelists

OUR PURPOSE

We form, equip, and coach parish evangelists for ministry in 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.

2022-2023 CALENDAR

Summer Socials

Join us at any or all of our summer socials to catch up with old friends and meet new friends in parish evangelization! Our socials will be held at local bars around the AOC. Appetizers will be offered by the CNE and drinks and meals are one the participants. Each event will go from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many people to expect. We hope to see you there!

Check back soon for registration for our August Missio Days.
