Missionary Discipleship Series

“We only really become disciples, when we become Missionary Disciples . . . I want to encourage you to participate in this very important series.” – Bishop Andrew Cozzens

Learn how to grow deeper in prayer, understand the importance of living as a disciple, identify your unique baptismal gifts and experience how to share those gifts with others. This one of a kind journey through the Missionary Discipleship Series from the Office of Evangelization is recommended by the bishops to assist you in passing on the faith!

Archbishop Hebda has joined our speaker team along with Father Steven Hoffman, Father Rolf Tollefson, Dr. Michael Naughton, Molly Schorr, Patrick Conley and others. Plus, weekly emails between sessions with special video presentations which include Bishop Andrew Cozzens and Father Rocky of Relevant Radio! These expert teachers will lead you to an exciting, new understanding of faith and why a missionary heart is so important.
