How can Catholics evangelize in a culture that calls moral convictions “hate speech” and “intolerance?” Please join us for this important day of thoughtful presentations, dialogue and reflection.
Fr. Michael Sweeney, OP will begin by looking at evangelization as lay initiative. We will hear from DSPT students about how they were evangelized and what brought them to engage the faith whole-heartedly. Fr. Justin Gable, OP will talk about the importance of mercy and our Fellows will share what evangelization looks like in areas such as business, education and the media. See Order of Events below. This event will be live-streamed.
