The Church on the Move: Ways to Get Mission and Mercy in Motion 2016
OCTOBER 29, 2016
Many statistics on the Catholic Church today are sobering, and the future of the Church can seem bleak indeed. The average parish often feels helpless to do anything that might help turn the tide and revitalize the Church.
But best-selling author Joe Paprocki, D.Min. insists that there is good news: with the right plans in place, the Catholic Church – and the local parish specifically – will not only survive, but thrive. A Church on the Move offers practical strategies for moving parishes forward, principally by focusing on the one thing the Church can offer that the world-at-large cannot: Jesus Christ.
This workshop was presented by Joe Paprocki who is a highly popular and well-known Catholic speaker. He received his Master’s Degree from Loyola University and his Doctorate in Ministry Degree at St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein. He has worked in religious education for many years as a catechist and as a Director of Religious Education in the Office for Catechesis of the Archdiocese of Chicago. He is currently the National Consultant for Faith Formation at Loyola Press. He has authored a number of books, including “Practice Makes Catholic,” “A Well-Built Faith,” and “Under the Influence of Jesus.” His most current book is, “A Church On the Move.”
