The Department of Pastoral Ministers & Pastoral Services promotes effective Catholic evangelization by offering on-site services and media resources to parish staffs and parishioners in Glenmary parishes. We want to foster the awareness of the basic call of every Catholic to be an evangelizer—and also provide training which develops skills for everyday evangelizing.
We strive to help each Glenmary parish reach out to better proclaim the mission of Jesus Christ in that locality. As the U.S. bishops state in thier video, In the Footsteps of Jesus, "The test of our Church is not simply have we kept the Faith, but have we shared the Faith."Department services in this area include:
- Workshops and resources for 'everyday evangelizing'
- Workshops and resources for reaching out as a church
- Parish planning for evangelization
