The fruits of this ministry are engaged parishioners, vibrant communities, personal spiritual maturity, increased stewardship, and a growing Body of Christ.
We believe that parishes can progress towards greater health with the help of a parishioner-led Missions & Evangelism Ministry. Through this ministry, the whole community can be challenged to welcome others and deepen their knowledge of the faith.
These pages are aimed to help parish Missions & Evangelism Ministries access resources and inspiration to drive their evangelistic work. Start here:
The pages listed to the left describe practices identified for each of the seven focus areas of a parish Missions & Evangelism Ministry. Click here for a print-ready PDF of these pages.
Some of the projects described here will already be in place at your parish. First, with the blessing of your priest, gather a group of interested people and choose a chair person. Begin by cataloging what your parish is already doing. Then choose 1-2 projects to start or develop further.
