Living as Missionary Disciples

Encounter – Accompany – Community – Send

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.

Presentations will be customized to your group’s needs and time-frames.  For more information please contact Terrie Baldwin to discuss or Betty Baldner to schedule a presentation.
