Joe Paprocki, will offer practical strategies for moving parishes forward, principally by focusing on the one thing the Church can offer that the world at large cannot: Jesus Christ. Using his new book as a guide, “A Church on the Move: 52 Ways to get Mission and Mercy in Motion,” Joe explores five key categories: how a Church on the move thinks, functions, worships, forms disciples and engages the world. This program brings to the parish the great themes of Pope Francis’s papacy—mission, mercy, and evangelization—and replaces despair with profound hope for the future of the Catholic Church.
