Relit: the Heart of Evangelization
Help those who have already had an encounter with Christ. Your parish offers programs on the Bible and sacraments, the virtues and saints… But what program do you offer that teaches how to share the Faith? How to evangelize?
Be trained how and inspired by Relit: The Heart of Evangelization! This one-of-a-kind, DVD training program will revitalize your parish by training your core group how to share the Good News with the rest of your parish and beyond.
With the practical tools and fresh perspective found in Relit, you can make your Bible Studies, Religious Education program, Sacramental Preparation classes, and all your parish activities reach and inspire more parishioners by integrating evangelization. St. Thomas More Church, Austin has been renewed by using this engaging program!
Easter Books - We all know that Easter Mass means record attendance and a packed house. But what are we doing to continue the momentum as people leave? But what if it was as simple as just handing them a great Catholic book on their way into church? Easter Books is transforming parishes around the nation with this simple, powerful idea: Books change our lives. What we read today walks and talks with us tomorrow. Sometimes all it takes is the right book to bring people back to church. Learn how YOU can make a difference at your parish this Easter. Order 500 copies or more of one of the featured titles for just $1 (plus fifty cents shipping) per book. Or order 6–499 copies for $3 per book (includes shipping)
At Easter Masses, friendly volunteers pass out the books as people come to church. Then encourage people to read the book through regular and inspiring announcements.
