2018 Lay Ministry Convocation Follow-up

Thank you for joining us at the Lay Ecclesial Ministry Convocation! There was a great spirit among all of us as we continued to deepen our faith and practice of living as missionary disciples.

In July 2017, delegations from dioceses and archdioceses throughout the United States gathered at the invitation of the USCCB to explore what it means to live as missionary disciples at the Joy of the Gospel Convocation.  The delegation was present at this meeting and a group of panelists shared their joyful witnesses.

These videos are forthcoming in this space as well.


Living as Missionary Disciples


In addition Terrie Baldwin, Director of the Office of Evangelization shared some ideas to ponder on the newest document from the USCCB Committee on Catechesis and Evangelization, Living as Missionary Disciples.  Living as a missionary disciple comes from one’s own personal way of living, the privilege we hold as Baptized members of the church and it looks at how we share this spirit in each of our ministries.


A video of the Living as Missionary Disciple talk from the convocation will be available here soon.

The Living as Missionary Disciples book as an online Flipbook is available by clicking here or for purchase by clicking here.

Este recurso está concebido para dar a parroquas y ministerios de la iglesia lo que podría llamarse una hoja de ruta hacia “caminos para la marcha de la Iglesia” en la evangelización.
