Evangelization is not the task of a few persons, called to a specific ministry of evangelization; it is the responsibility of the whole Church. It is the missionary call we received from Jesus found in Matthew 28 “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations…” Evangelization is the very heart of the Church’s mission.  “It is a task and mission which the vast and profound changes of present-day society make all the more urgent. Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity.  She exists in order to evangelize.” (EN, 14). This course will lead the participants to rediscover this task as explained by Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation “Evangelii Gaudium”.

Outcomes:

By the end of this course students will be able to:

  1. To understand the new evangelization, as one of the highest priorities of Pope Francis’ pontificate and how to implement it in our ministry.
  2. Identify concrete areas and focus that urgently need to be applied in ministry.
  3. Recognize the current challenges of evangelization in the world today and be able to apply a prophetic / positive vision to the task of evangelization
  4. Articulate the seven main themes found in the Apostolic Exhortation which summarizes the new evangelization put forth by Pope Francis.
