Evangelization Summit   –  Saturday, 26 September:  A lot has changed in the last 6 months- and we as a Church have had to learn how to respond.  But have we done enough? Is there more for us to do? As the world begins to open up again, what new opportunities are there for sharing the Good News of Jesus with all the world?  On Saturday September 26 from 12 – 3pm EDT, we are hosting a FREE, LIVE virtual conference for Catholics, tackling the topic Crisis & Opportunity: How to Evangelize In Uncertain Times.  To answer this question, you’ll be hearing from:  George Weigel, Mary Healy, Michele Thompson, and Jon Bielawski.  And you’ll be hearing from people who have creatively responded to the call to mission during these uncertain times we are moving through.  To grab your free ticket, just click this link: https://uevangelize.org/virtualsummit/
