"Start With Jesus: We the Missionary People" with Julianne Stanz
Time & Location
About the Event
Start with Jesus: We the Missionary People
During this challenging time, missionary creativity and zeal is needed more than ever! How do we raise up the next generation of saints? What is THE spiritual moment that we are called to as a Church? What does the new Directory for Catechesis mean in the midst of all the changes that we are experiencing?
We the missionary people start with Jesus — what He did and what He asked us to do. It is He who challenges each one of us to grow as His disciples and reach out on mission to the world. Becoming a vibrant parish community is the result of small, intentional steps initiated at the parish leadership level but also accepted by each disciple personally. People are always our best resource in the disciple making process, so how do we mobilize our people now for mission? With joy, humor and practical insights, Julianne Stanz will help set forth a vision for reaching all people and practical ways by which we can become a community of missionary disciples who are joyfully bold in faith.

She is passionate about living a joyful Catholic faith and has been profoundly influenced by her life growing up in Ireland.
