For those of you interested in evangelization, I'd like to recommend this upcoming on-line offering by the Paulist National Evangelistic Association.
Keys to Reaching Inactive Catholics (January 2009)
Item 8145 The Paulist Evangelization Training Institute (PETI) will offer its online course Keys to Reaching Inactive Catholics from January 19 to February 29, 2009. Over the six-week course, John and Therese Boucher will discuss ways to reach today's inactive, marginal and unchurched Catholics. They will explore six keys for developing a new model of everyday missionary outreach that goes beyond programs and relies on God's presence in each person's journey of faith
I know the Bouchers and they are the real deal - dedicated, creative, effective, experienced evangelists. This won't just be about getting bodies back in the pews - it will be about calling Catholic to intentional discipleship in the midst of the Church. John is Director of the Office of Parish Life and Evangelization Ministry for the Diocese of Trenton. Therese wrote the new Life in the Spirit seminar manual.
This is especially timely because if you register by December 19, the course is half-price. A mere 75 samolians.
