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 there is good news; with the right plans in place, the Catholic Church—and the local parish specifically—will not only survive, but thrive.
Joe Paprocki, will offer 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. Using his new book as a guide, “A Church on the Move: 52 Ways to get Mission and Mercy in Motion,” Joe explores five key categories: how a Church on the move thinks, functions, worships, forms disciples and engages the world. This program brings to the parish the great themes of Pope Francis’s papacy—mission, mercy, and evangelization—and replaces despair with profound hope for the future of the Catholic Church.
