The Office of Discipleship Formation is committed to furthering and deepening formation in missionary discipleship within the context of the call for a “new evangelization”. Our primary formation opportunities are through our Catholic Evangelization Studies Courses. All are welcome regardless of their ministry or leadership in the Church.
The four-part Catholic Evangelization Studies Course (CES) provides spiritual, theological and pastoral formation in the missionary discipleship:
I. Discover Jesus
II. Follow Jesus
III. Worship Jesus
IV. Share Jesus
Participants will leave the seminars with tools that will enable them to craft deep habits of prayer, articulate the evangelical and ecclesial foundations for evangelization, and implement a mission-centered vision for their parishes. The course is perfect for those who wish to deepen their own understanding of the New Evangelization and embrace of Christ's call to discipleship.
