FOUR CHARACTERISTICS OF A VIBRANT CHURCH
HOPE, GIFTEDNESS, AWARENESS, AND RELATIONSHIP
As the world becomes more “spiritual but NOT religious” what does the Catholic Church have to offer?
What can RELIGION provide – that the culture cannot?
What does our faith in Jesus bring to the world?

This workshop will be facilitated by
Sr. Gael Gensler and Kathy McNicholas
What factors mark a “vibrant parish”? There are about as many answers to that question as there are Catholic parishes! And most of the answers view the parish through a unique lens – Finances in the black? October count? Number of Baptisms and Weddings? Is that true vibrancy? Sr. Gael and Kathy will spend an evening viewing “parish vibrancy” through the lens of what our Catholic faith has to offer the modern world – Hope, Giftedness, Awareness, and Relationship. Come and be inspired to discuss ways your parish can be more alive and vibrant in Christ.
