Vitality Day: Hospitality and Welcoming

What it is: Based on the feedback from the nearly 1200 participants in our first round of Evangelization Days, the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship is offering a three-part series of Vitality Days in the coming year entitled “Hospitality: Creating a Welcoming, Inviting, and Engaging Community.” The foundational step in creating a culture of evangelization in your parish is to focus on radical hospitality and welcoming.

Who should go: All parishes are invited to send representatives who want to go learn more about leading evangelization efforts in their parish. Participants may include clergy, religious, staff, and volunteers. If the parish has established an Evangelization Lead and/or Evangelization Team, they are strongly encouraged to attend.

Please save the date for your vicariate! Please note that if you are not able to make the gathering in your vicariate, you are most welcome to attend any of the remaining Vitality Days in a different vicariate.
