Mission of Love

"Mission of Love" is sponsored by the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship (OEMD). Each month, the show will focus on spreading the "Good News" through the lens of evangelization and discipleship. Topics will include ways people and communities are evangelizing, discipleship happenings in the Archdiocese of Chicago, and how we encounter Christ in our world.

Hosts: Elizabeth Jennings White, Director of the OEMD

Summer Evangelization Efforts

Host Beth White, Director of the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship, was joined by three guests who talked about summer evangelization activities in the Archdiocese. Tom Collins, a parishioner from St. Paul of the Cross in Park Ridge, spoke about their parish efforts to have a joyful presence in their community through an “evangelization booth” at the Taste of Park Ridge and “Coffee with Catholics” conversations he started this summer at a local coffee shop. Valerie Jennings, Parish Vitality Coordinator for Vicariate 6, shared some experiences from the Black Catholic Congress XII and promoted an upcoming play about the life of Fr. Augustus Tolton. And the final guest was Christina Aranda, Mission Appeals Coordinator, for the Archdiocesan Mission Office. She shared information about the more than 150 missionaries who visit our parishes during the summer and the ways this reminds us to be missionary disciples and to evangelize in our own communities.

Summer: A Time for Inward Renewal with Outward Focus

As a part of Renew My Church we are called to not only renew our ministries, programs, and structures, but we are also each called to a personal spiritual renewal. Host Beth White was joined by guest Fr. Steve Kanonick, Moderator of the Curia, to discuss how nearly 350 employees of the archdiocesan pastoral center and agencies gathered for a one-day retreat to pray, to build community, and to focus on the mission of the Church, and why that is important. The second half of the show was dedicated to opportunities to go out to meet people where they are this summer – street Masses, block parties, festivals, etc. Fr. Don Nevins, Pastor of St. Agnes of Bohemia in Little Village, shared some of the ways in which his parish uses the summer months to reach out to people in their homes, in particular their long tradition of neighborhood street Masses every Tuesday and Thursday night for five weeks of the summer. Krystle Frey, Senior Events Coordinator for the Department of Parish Vitality and Mission, shared updates on the upcoming Theology On Tap kick-off on July 10th, Theology on Tap in local communities, and information about two events coming us in Fall 2017.

In addition to Fr. Tom, guests included, Christina Bax, Pastoral Associate & Director of Evangelization at St. Clement Parish, and Bryan Fong, Coordinator for Young Adult Ministry in Vicariate 1 and parishioner at St. Hubert Catholic Church.

Bringing Christ into the Streets

At the Good Friday Walk for Peace 2017, more than 1500 diverse people from throughout the Archdiocese gathered to pray the Stations of Cross in the streets of the Englewood neighborhood. On today’s show, we listened to voices from the day, through recorded audio clips and conversations with live guests. Our guests were Ryan Lents, director for the Office for Human Dignity and Solidarity who also served as a co-host for today’s show. Ryan shared his experience of being on the organizing committee and the meaning of the experience for him. Additional guests included, Mearl Sledge, who grew up in Englewood, is a Chicago bus driver, biological and foster mother, and a parishioner of St. Thomas in Hyde Park; Tyrone Pittman, the Choir Director of the Chicago Black Catholic Choir, also directs the choirs of Holy Angels and St. Phillip Neri Catholic churches; and Laura Field is a business owner and spiritual director at her parish, Old St. Patrick’s, and at St. Benedict Catholic Church on the Northside. Each of these guests shared why they chose to attend the Walk for Peace, the hope they found in the experience, and the power that prayer has to transform each of us and our communities.

Streets, Satellites, and Science – Ways to Share Our Faith with Others

On today’s show, we highlighted four upcoming opportunities in our Archdiocese to discover language for sharing our faith. Our first guest, Fr. Don Nevins, pastor of Saint Agnes of Bohemia Parish, discussed how his parish joins with five other parishes in the Little Village neighborhood to bring the re-enactment of the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis) to the streets to more than 5,000 participants on Good Friday (April 14th this year) as a way to pray through movement and share their faith with the larger community. Michael Dopp, president of Redeemer Ministries, joined us to talk about the meaning of evangelization and the upcoming New Evangelization Summit on May 12-13th. The Conference, hosted in Ottawa, Canada, will be broadcast to more than 35 host locations throughout North America, including the Archdiocese of Chicago. Our final guest was Fr. John Kartje, president and rector of Mundelein Seminary/University of Saint Mary of the Lake. Fr. Kartje, who holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics discussed two upcoming events on faith and science, one to be hosted at the Seminary on March 16th & 17th and the other at Adler Planetarium on May 18th. He discussed the ways in which faith and science can dialogue and how both can show us how God is present in the world.
