Prior to the call of Pope Francis to share the “Joy of the Gospel”, the Church of the Nativity embarked on a process “to grow disciples, develop a healthier parish community, and more intentionally and effectively serve the New Evangelization.”
This presentation will include the Church of the Nativity's story, offer key strategies that drove the transformation of the parish and provide a living witness to the words of Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation: “Whenever we make the effort to return to the source and to recover the original freshness of the Gospel, new avenues arise, new paths of creativity open up, with different forms of expression, more eloquent signs and words with new meaning for today’s world. Every form of authentic evangelization is always “new”.(11)
