The five-day conference and pilgrimage, “Grace and Action: The ministry of catechists in the footsteps of St. Paul,” unlocked numerous insights for participants, mostly lay catechists and church workers in parishes in the United States and Mexico. In this video, meet participants who share how this program in Rome has invited them to greater prayer and trust in the Holy Spirit, deeper and more meaningful relationships, more authentic witness to the Gospel and greater freedom to share their faith with others.
“Catechizing and evangelizing are more than teaching,” said one participant. “It’s being a witness."
The July 17-21, 2023 experience was part of the joint leadership development initiatives of The Lay Centre at Foyer Unitas and Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology (ICSST), Seton Hall University.
