I am writing to encourage you and your staff members to make plans now to attend our Evangelization Congress on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at the Immaculate Conception Center.  Pope Francis reminds us often of the necessity of reaching out to those who need to heat the Joy of the Good News of Jesus Christ.  As we prepare to meet in Philadelphia in September of 2015 with our Holy Father,  we will benefit from participating in this Evangelization Congress where we will be able to hear dynamic speakers and share best practices relating to evangelization and renewal.

Father Allan Figueroa Deck, S.J., has agreed to deliver the keynote address.  He is an outstanding speaker.  The theme of the day is The Joy of Encountering Christ:  Love is Our Mission; the foundation of our four year intensive diocesan evangelization and catechetical renewal plan called The Joy of Encountering Christ–The Family’s Hope.

Details are found on the attached flyer. Please be sure to share this information with those who are not able to access DioNet.

If I can answer any questions, please email or call.
