LAUNCH – Basic Missionary Training

0 sec ago

LAUNCH – Basic Missionary Training

When: Monday evenings beginning Sept. 23 and ending Nov. 18 (No sessions on Thanksgiving or Remembrance Day)

Where: Catholic Pastoral Centre, Library, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon

Who: All the baptized, called to share their faith with others

Cost: $20

Register: Call Marilyn Jackson at 306-659-5836 or email mjackson@rcdos.ca

Deadline: Registration deadline is Sept. 16.

LAUNCH is a journey developed by Catholic Christian Outreach to gain attitudes, skills and knowledge over 7 weeks, that will help launch or sharpen our evangelization efforts. This training is open to everyone!

FOCUS:

  • The Church’s teaching about our calling and identity as Catholic disciples of Christ
  • The art of Intentional Accompaniment
  • How to use the Ultimate Relationship (a tool for sharing Jesus) to proclaim the Gospel
  • Learning to write and use our own story as an evangelization tool
  • Learning to identify thresholds
  • Creating a culture of sharing faith

HIGHLIGHTS:

Launch provides very practical evangelization tools and a safe environment in which to practice newly acquired skills.

Launch includes an ongoing follow-up plan, encouraging the larger group to form smaller core mission communities who will meet regularly to pray and support each other.

Launch will be presented by CCO Parish Missionary, Christy Dupuis.

While attending university, Christy Dupuis had a powerful encounter with Jesus and fell in love with her Catholic faith. After completing a B.A. in English, she went on to serve as a lay missionary with Catholic Christian Outreach. While serving as a missionary, Christy began speaking at conferences and retreats and leading workshops on a variety of topics. Her passion for evangelization and communicating the Gospel continues to drive her service to the Church.

Christy is married to Daniel and is the mother of four young children who challenge and inspire her. Believing that the parish is instrumental in evangelization efforts, Christy serves as a member of the pastoral team at her local parish, Immaculate Heart of Mary in Martensville, SK, where she co-labours with her pastor and others to form disciples and provide opportunities for all to encounter Jesus. Christy has also rejoined CCO to serve, once again, as a lay missionary: this time, as a Parish Missionary and consultant, helping to equip and train leaders to be evangelists in their parish communities.

Background:

The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect God’s creation. It is celebrated by Christians of all traditions, and the leaders of various churches have encouraged the faithful to participate. The Season of Creation is celebrated annually by tens of thousands of Christians around the world. Local volunteers on six continents organize and host celebrations in their communities. These events and activities range from prayer services to litter clean-ups to advocacy actions.

The season begins on September 1, the World Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology in many Western traditions.

September 1 was proclaimed as a day of prayer for creation (World Day of Prayer for Creation, or Creation Day) by Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios I for the Orthodox in 1989, and was embraced by the other major Christian European churches in 2001, and by Pope Francis for the Roman Catholic Church in 2015.
