Spring Workshops Aim to Strengthen Evangelization Efforts throughout Diocese

SAGINAW- This spring, faithful from parishes across the Diocese of Saginaw will attend workshops focused on evangelization. The Rev. Frank DeSiano, C.S.P., who served as a consultor to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Evangelization, will travel from Washington, D.C. to conduct the Regional Evangelization Workshops. The workshops will cover topics such as fostering deeper discipleship, evangelizing families, serving Catholics who do not regularly attend weekly Mass and more.

“We as a Diocese, are at our own ‘threshold of faith-life,’” said the Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw. “There could be no greater time for a ‘new evangelization’- a ‘re-evangelization’- within the Diocese of Saginaw. Every aspect of parish and diocesan life must be imbued with a spirit of evangelization. Pope Francis recently reminded Catholics that ‘All of us who are baptized are missionary disciples. We are called to become a living Gospel in the world.’”

 

Father DeSiano, president of Paulist Evangelization Ministries, will conduct the Regional Evangelization Workshops from April 30 to May 3. Detailed information and registration for these workshops can be found below and at the Diocese website by clicking here. 

“We want to continue supporting our parishes with helpful tools for their evangelizing efforts and by sharing best practices with them,” said Dr. Dan Osborn, Director of the Center For Ministry of the Diocese of Saginaw.”

There is no charge for the event; RSVP’s should be made to Connie Kaczynski at 989.797.6607. Online registration is also available. The Regional Evangelization Workshops are sponsored by the Office of the Bishop. Below are the various locations and times:
