Evangelization and the Acts of the Apostles
Who better to look to for guidance on evangelization than the Apostles and disciples of the early Church? And what better place to read their stories than in the firsthand account of the Acts of the Apostles? In the ten-part series, we will look at Evangelization and the Acts of the Apostles written by Dr. Mary Healy, which combines insightful biblical study with Church teaching and practical advice to show how modern Catholics can effectively impact their world for Jesus Christ.
The series explores topics such as the call of Jesus to evangelize, the power of the Sacraments, the role of charisms for building up the Body of Christ, techniques from St. Paul for reaching a secular culture, and more.
This study will be held on Sundays from Easter until Pentecost. We will meet from 10am-10:50am in the Senior Room. Coffee and snacks will be provided.
