We're realizing Pope Francis' vision of a mission-focused Church that can transform the world. 

Marc Cardaronella: Director, Office of Discipleship & Faith Formation

As Catholics, we want to see the Church flourish and grow. But seeing rows of empty pews every Sunday brings a painful realization--many of our friends, neighbors, and family members are absent, especially young families and single young adults. We want to reach out to those who are missing, but often we aren't sure what to do or even where to start. There's lots of ideas floating around and no real guidance. However, our new office has a plan.                 (Click here to read more...)

Sherry Weddell Forming Intentional Disciples                 

"We have seen it happen over and over. The presence of a significant number of disciples changes everything: a parish's spiritual tone, energy level, attendance, bottom line, and what parishioners ask of their leaders. Disciples pray with passion. Disciples worship. Disciples love the Church and serve her with energy and joy. Disciples give lavishly. Disciples hunger to learn more about their faith...Disciples evangelize because they have really good news to share" (p. 80-81).
