How do I know the movements of the Spirit in my life?
How is the Spirit calling me to greater growth?
What obstacles keep me from following the stirrings of the Spirit in my heart?
Where do you see the Holy Spirit “caged?”
What gifts of the Holy Spirit might be helpful to embrace more in my life?

Zoom Was Not A Band-Aid

Thursday, May 20
2:00 p.m.

As dioceses and parishes begin to or continue the process of re-opening, many ministry leaders are eager to gather again in person and get away from the screen. Yet there is a concern among ministers that young adults will not come back, that many prefer to engage in ministry and worship virtually. This webinar will explore the strengths and limits of using technology in ministry with young adults. To register, click here. Speakers include:

Mary Kate Polanin, Digital Content Editor at Busted Halo

John Grosso: director of digital media for the Diocese of Bridgeport and member of the Vatican’s international digital media program “Faith Communications in the Digital World”

José Julian, Matos Auffant: Executive Director for Mission at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX
