A New Catechesis for the New Evangelization: New Ardor, Methods, and Expression (Sponsored by Loyola Press)
Presenter: Joe Paprocki, DMin
Time: 1 hour

Loyola says about this webinar: “Catechists are at the forefront of the New Evangelization. We are called to “re-propose” the Gospel to the world, relying on an approach that is “new in its ardor, methods, and expression.” (St. John Paul II)In this Webinar, Joe Paprocki, DMin, will explore what a “new catechesis for the New Evangelization” should look like, using as an example, the newly revised Christ Our Life New Evangelization Edition (Loyola Press). Joe will also be drawing from his most recent book, Under the Influence of Jesus: The Transforming Experience of Encountering Christ and Pope Francis’ book, The Church of Mercy to capture and illustrate how catechesis can take on new ardor, methods, and expression.”
