The Office of Evangelization is here to offer a presence of love and friendship in spreading the Good News of the salvation in Jesus Christ and promoting the mission of the Catholic Church.
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.
“Coming Together” Workshop
The Offices of Stewardship and Evangelization would like to thank all clergy, parish staff, and lay leaders who attended the workshop on November 11th and 12th.
Participants left inspired, renewed and empowered with concrete steps in mind for the ministries of stewardship and evangelization beneficial in their parish or organization.
To continue the process of sharing the workshop we will be creating a DVD and sending it to each Pastor in the Diocese of Cleveland in later December. The DVD will include a copy of the three presentations. If you would like a copy of the DVD please send an e-mail to Terrie Baldwin at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and U.S. Mailing address.
In the meanwhile, click here for the powerpoint PDF’s and the reflection questions that accompany each talk. We hope the spirit of the workshop will continue in many of your parishes.
Finally, at the workshop, suggestions were made at the tables after each talk. Please be patient. We hope to have these posted as well by early December.
The Office of Stewardship and The Office of Evangelization are beginning a new process to help in the discovery and discernment of an individual’s charisms in order to live the vision as presented in our Catholic Tradition and in The Joy of the Gospel, where Pope Francis is asking us to create missionary disciples in evangelizing churches.

Joyfully Gifted is now available in a youth ministry version and a Hispanic version. Please contact Terrie Baldwin or Terri Preskar for more information
