Evangelization Resources

Catherine of Siena Institutehttps://siena.org/

Advancing the Intentional Missionary Discipleship of Catholics

We do this by:

  • Equipping parishes and dioceses to become centers of evangelization and formation, charism & vocational discernment, and on-going apostolic support for the laity.
  • Fostering the intentional discipleship of clergy, religious, and lay leaders so that they can be effective evangelizers and formators of the laity.
  • Making evangelization and formation resources rooted in the Church’s Tradition available to Catholic leaders and laity and by creating new resources as needed.
  • Animating discussion, theological inquiry, and pastoral consultation throughout the Church regarding the evangelization, apostolic mission, and formation of the laity.
  • Collaborating with interested individuals, groups, and organizations in the service of this mission.

It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain. – John  15:16a

Our Goal:

To inspire and equip 35,000 parishes to become missional, and through them to bring 2 million people to Jesus every year within 10 years.

Why 35,000 parishes? 

The Roger’s innovation curve tells us that we can hit a tipping point in the church. If we can get innovators and early adopters to embrace being a missional parishes, the rest will follow. We need just 16% of parishes to become missional in order to change the Catholic church. That’s roughly 35,000 parishes.
