"Heart to Heart": Evangelization Seminar For Parishioners & Clergy
Event Date: February 25, 2018
Our February event for our 50th Parish Jubilee will take place on Sunday, February 25, 2018 after the 9:00 AM Divine Liturgy in the parish hall. As Christians we are all called by Christ to share our faith with others. Just prior to His Ascension into heaven Christ told the Apostles: “Go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations.” This command of Christ is also directed towards us.
It is not always natural and easy to evangelize, to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to others and welcome others to join the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ. Nonetheless, as disciples’ of Christ we must accept this challenge and pray that the Holy Spirit grant us the means to answer the call.
During the presentation “Heart to Heart” we will look at our responsibilities to evangelize, the challenges we face in evangelizing others, preparing ourselves for evangelization through better learning our Byzantine Catholic faith handed down to us and actual steps and a plan to evangelize others here in the Valley. We will also learn about the Icon of Evangelization and explain about parishioners taking the Evangelization Icon home for a week and praying for God’s blessings on our evangelization efforts.
