   Mission in Motion, presented by the Office of Evangelization. Calling lay Catholics more fully into the life and mission of the Church is critical for creating evangelizing, vibrant parishes. Mission in Motion is a practical workshop that covers these critical topics: How each of us is called to evangelize — and what that means; real ways to have one-on-one faith conversations; the nuts and bolts of a parish evangelization team. Join international presenters Michael Dopp, Father Jon Bielawski, and Michele Thompson for Mission in Motion, the latest installment in the Disciple Series.
