As we find ourselves in this post-Christian “New Apostolic Age,” many of the pastoral methods and practices that we relied on in the past are not as effective as they once were for leading people to faith and building and nourishing disciples in community. We need to recognize that a radical change is required at a personal and communal level for this new deeper calling to work with the risen Lord as He renews the Catholic Church for the 21st century.
The call to leadership and renewal requires humility and an openness to new learning as we re-equip ourselves and each other to make disciples, build communities, and inspire witness with the risen Lord.
Leading in a Renewed Church is being designed and developed by a group of priests, lay leaders and college and university faculty in partnership with our local leaders. Our goal is to provide spirit-filled, highly effective leadership development experiences for clergy and lay ministry leaders in activated parishes – to give you the resources you need to build and sustain a powerful “New Reality” within each of our parishes.
