Workshop:

Incorporating Evangelization into Children's Faith Formation

In this Letter to the Galatians, St. Paul writes, “. . . the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (2:20). St. Paul knew that he was loved by God, that Jesus gave his life for St. Paul, and St. Paul’s life was changed. After encountering the risen Lord, St. Paul spent his life proclaiming the Gospel, evangelizing everyone he encountered and teaching the rich treasures of the faith. Do we want those entrusted to our care to hear and to know the deep and faithful love that our personal God has for them? Do we want those we teach to say with St. Paul, “. . . the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me?” In this workshop, we will come to a better understanding of the importance of including evangelization into children’s faith formation so that those we minister to will be brought into communion with Jesus, have sincere conversion of heart, and develop mature and lasting faith. This workshop's creation was made possible through a generous grant by the Our Sunday Visitor Institute.
