Free Virtual Summit on Evangelization in the Family (Aug. 19-21)
Bishop Barron and the Word on Fire Institute are offering a FREE virtual summit on Evangelization in the Family! It will be taking place from Wednesday, August 19th – Friday, August 21st. Given the uncertainty that we are all dealing with, this is a opportune time to focus on our family, to reach out to those who are distant and to learn how we can evangelize those who are closest to us.
How to Join:
The event will be taking place through a Facebook group, but you do not need to have an account. Simply go to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wofcommunity and then click the “Join Group” button. Just fill out your name and email, and they will let you into the group right away. The content for all three days will be posted at the link above.
Outline for the Three Days:
On Wednesday, Word on Fire Institute Fellow of Education Robert Mixa will unpack the “most important” parable in the Bible and why it’s the perfect model for parenting, family evangelization, and catechesis in the home.
Then on Thursday, Robert Mixa and Dr. Joseph Atkinson will sit down for a lengthy discussion about the biblical origins of the family. They will show how family life can change the culture and why creating Christ-centered homes can make or break an entire society.
Lastly, on Friday, Robert Mixa will interview Haley Stewart, creator of the popular blog Carrots for Michaelmas. They will exchange tips for living out Catholicism in a busy household and how to help your kids experience the “rhythm of the year” and the story of Christ.
It is a great program for our families and I encourage you to participate.
