Commissioned: A Prayerful Response to the New Evangelization (Father Jeffrey P. Lorig)

There's an awful lot of talk about the New Evangelization, but do we really know what it is? Do we really know how to prayerfully respond to the call for a new evangelization as individuals and as parish communities? This day of reflection will not only look at the origins and concept of this renewed call in our Church, but will also prayerfully examine the role of the Holy Spirit in the New Evangelization. There will be time study, reflection, sharing, and prayer.
