Welcoming the Hidden Christ in our Parishes
Parish Vitality Webinar Series II
May 18, 2022  |  10 - 11:30 a.m.

Joyful, blended family surrounding older man with a wheelchair

Mother Theresa once remarked that she found Christ living under a bridge in Calcutta. We don’t need to journey to some far-off land to encounter the hidden Lord. He is in our parishes in the form of a shaking hand grasping a railing to stop a fall; a frustrated child with a learning disability; a depressed teenager looking for hope; a wheelchair stuck in the snow. This webinar will focus on how our response as a parish community to people living with disabilities increases parish vitality while enriching our own spiritual lives in the process. It is in giving that we receive!

Presenters: An expert panel led by Dr. Constance (Connie) Price, Co-Director, Programs, and Assoc. Director, Catechesis, Office of Formation for Discipleship.

Catholics Come Home logo and St. Peter's Basilica at night

Those who have been away from the Church may be feeling a tug in the heart from our Heavenly Father calling them back home. We want them back. We have missed them, and our Church is not the same without them. From over 20 years of insights in outreach, Catholics Come Home, an independent, non-profit Catholic apostolate, will discuss trends facing the church, share insights into reaching out to families in particular, and talk about how compassionate messaging can help bring Catholics home. As pandemic restrictions wind down, now is the time to come home!

Presenters: Dr. Ryan Hanning, PhD, Catholics Come Home, Professor of Theology and Catholic Studies, University of Mary Instructor, Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Catechetical Institute.
