A Culture of Evangelization is Central to Renewal

On October 1-2, 2018, the Archdiocese of Chicago hosted a two-day summit focused on renewal and how we are going to build a new reality together. Host Beth White and Co-Host Jenn Delvaux from the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship spoke with Kathy McNicholas the Pastoral Associate and Director of Religious Education at Incarnation Parish in Palos Heights about her experience and her takeaways from the Summit. Two Parish Vitality Coordinators, Anne Chrzan from vicariate two and Nicholas Carlson from vicariate five, spoke about how they are helping parishes in their respective vicariates with the renewal process. The two-day Renew My Church Summit stressed the importance of creating a culture of evangelization and offered next steps.

Welcoming Young Catholics to College

In the next few weeks, many of our young adults are returning to college or heading there for the first time. What kind of support will they encounter at college that will help them take on a mature faith? Host Beth White, Director of the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship, spoke to three ministers from very different schools. She was joined by Becca Siar, Director of Campus Ministry from Saint John Paul II Newman Center at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC): Dr. Mary Deeley, Pastoral Associate from the Sheil Catholic Center at Northwestern University; and Joshua Smyser-DeLeon, University Minister from Catholic Campus Ministry at DePaul University. They shared the many creative ways in which they intentionally reach out to Catholic students and non-Catholic students and how they work to form relationships and empower student leaders to share their faith with others. Please listen to this very hopeful, inspiring conversation.

Evangelization 101

How would you describe evangelization? How is it distinct from catechesis? How is it related to adult formation? Do we go door-to-door? These and many other questions about the basics of evangelization were discussed by the members of the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship – Host Beth White, and Evangelization Coordinators, Jenn Delvaux and Jose Coronel. The second half of the show was dedicated to good books to add to your summer reading list that will help listeners better understand the evangelization efforts in the Archdiocese of Chicago – Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell, Divine Renovation by Fr. James Mallon, and The Joy of the Gospel by Pope Francis. The first book offers insight into the individual journey to God, the second provides direction on how to create communities that help people encounter Jesus and grow as disciples, and the last book offers us Pope Francis’s vision for evangelization in today’s world.
