Calendar of Evangelization Events
Together we hope to be a part of building up the church by ministering to the people of God through pastoral care of the faithful and reaching out to those who are away from the faith or do not know Jesus Christ. To add your parish evangelization or adult faith formation event to this list, please send information including a flyer if you have one to Terrie Baldwin at email@example.com.
Diocese of Cleveland Convocation Team Presentations Available
In July 2017, a 10 person Convocation Team from the Diocese of Cleveland attended the USCCB’s Joy of the Gospel Convocation. Team members are ready and willing to share their insights from the Convocation along with the vision for Living as Missionary Disciples with any parish, school, or organization in the Diocese of Cleveland.
