CSL-07 The Gospel of Matthew
The Gospel of Matthew is a very intricate Gospel that was written from a “Jewish” perspective, for a predominately Jewish Christian community.

With Advent we move into the new Church Year and weekly we will hear Matthew’s Gospel proclaimed at Sunday Mass. Come explore this interesting gospel and find out how Matthew continues to challenge us today. (8 hours - 4 sessions)

W-121c How to Begin Evangelization in a Catholic Parish
Based on the Paulist Evangelization Ministries material, this is a series that will be facilitated to help parishes form teams and committees for reaching out as Evangelizing Catholics. Each of the sessions will spend time going through Fr. Frank DeSiano’s book The Evangelizing Catholic and viewing a short DVD in order to consider how Catholics can become activate participants in The New Evangelization. Evangelization has important goals. It involves not only the renewal of the Catholic people, but also reaching those people who are on the edges of faith, or who have no faith for all practical purposes. Participants will leave with concrete ideas for developing evangelizing programs and activities in their parishes. (Holy Trinity, Mount Belvieu)
