Welcome Letter

October 2017 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, It is our great joy to welcome you to the 2017 Dallas Ministry Conference! As Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas and President of the University of Dallas, we are grateful that you have taken time aside from your normal work, family, and ministry commitments to join us for three days of Missionary Discipleship. This event promises to be a faith-filled and formative experience, and your participation will surely affect your own faith journey as well as those you encounter. As you are well aware, there are many challenges in the world today. It is our great hope that together we can help the people we serve to better understand their faith and grow in spirituality. In turn, that will help them find answers to the controversial issues and questions we currently face. While you attend the sessions, we invite you to come together in prayer, visit the exhibit hall, and enjoy the liturgical art and music over this weekend, we pray that your mind and heart will be opened to God’s call in your life and that you will leave this conference empowered and rejuvenated. Thank you for your presence, your faithful participation, and your willingness to generously share what you learn at this conference with your Catholic communities at home. May God our heavenly Father bless each of you, and may the knowledge, prayer and fellowship at this conference renew your spirit and your dedicated ministry in the Church! Sincerely in Christ,

Most Rev. Edward J. Burns Bishop, Diocese of Dallas


Thomas W. Keefe, Esq President, University of Dallas

The Saint John’s Bible: Volume 6 “Gospel & Acts” of the Heritage Edition The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery since the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minn., commissioned world-renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson, senior scribe to Her Majesty the Queen’s Crown Office at the House of Lords in London, England, to lead a team of scribes and artists to create this masterpiece. This year, the Dallas Ministry Conference Liturgical Art Display will showcase Volume 6 “Gospel & Acts” of the Heritage Edition. The display will be located in the center of the exhibit hall during the three days of the conference. Join us and experience this amazing work of art.

Michael James Mette Also presenting sessions 06-07* in English Michael James Mette is a Catholic performing artist who blends music, technology and testimony. He has spent much of the past three years touring the country with his wife, Michelle, and their six young children. Together, they have visited forty-four states and shared their ministry with countless parishes on their journey. Michael’s music is passionate like a Friday night and reverent like a Sunday morning. His latest album “Arts + Humanity” (2015) sits at the intersection of Church and culture. “Bring Forth the Light” (2012) reflects a mature view of the Catholic faith, exploring musical themes of human love, life, and the afterlife. His debut album, “Always What I Need” (2010) encourages simple trust in God’s providence. Michael and Michelle have worked over ten years in parish ministry. In between concerts, driving days and homeschool, their hobbies include roller coasters, cooking, and Cardinal’s baseball.

This workshop will offer tangible processes for creating a benefactor base as well as ways to bring in funding from people outside your existing community. Sponsored by Next Level Ministry

Youth Ministry 101: What youth really desire and why we should give them that. — Joel De Loera

This workshop is ideal for parents, teachers, catechists and youth ministers. Those of us who have ministered to or have being around young people, are often confused and sometimes clueless as to how to reach out to them and engage them in Church-related activities. In this workshop you will learn what teens really want to get out from Church and why we should give them that! With this in mind, ministry with youth should not be as complicated as we sometimes make it seem. You will also learn some basic tools that will help you connect with the young people in your parish.

Does teaching the Catechism to religion teachers make sense? — Marlon de la Torre, M.A., M.Ed.

Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership: Spiritual Disciplines for Sustainable Leadership — J. Lee Whittington, Ph.D.


Faith and Science: Exciting Resources for the Catholic Mission — Fr. John Bayer


C 146

If we are to be transformational leaders we must first be transformed. But, personal transformation is an ongoing process. The session will examine the role of spiritual disciplines in cultivating the leader’s relationship with God as the foundation for leading in the Spirit. Presentation includes several practical suggestions and invites discussion of practices others have found useful. Sponsored by Neuhoff School of Ministry Modern science presents one of the greatest challenges to evangelization today. Meeting this challenge will bear immense fruits for the world. Thankfully, there is an overwhelming amount of material available to show how the Catholic Church has been and can continue to be among the most important institutional and intellectual forces supporting science. This material can help Catholics to preach the Gospel in service of the world by promoting a scientific culture rooted in authentic reason and the common good. This presentation intends to deliver a lot of this material in a concise and accessible form to catechists, teachers and ministers.



Spiritual direction today names several holy relationships among mature disciples of Christ. It may be, first, direction—an instructor helping a disciple learn a great Catholic spiritual tradition; or guidance—more experienced helping less experienced in prayer and progress in the Spirit; or companioning—two experienced disciples guiding each other; or simply spiritual friendship—singly or in a group. These each help mature disciples reach spiritual discernment—the graced awareness of the interaction of faith, belief, and action—head, heart, and hands. Direction helps us find what pleases God by enacting our natural and supernatural gifts. It leads us to read the signs of the times with the Church. Good spiritual direction leads mature disciples to what every pope since Paul VI called “a new evangelization.” This means enacting my natural and supernatural gifts and so living, transparently joyful, a missionary discipleship. Sponsored by Loyola Press

Period 02 & 03 02-06 C 140

What’s all the buzz about spiritual direction? — Victoria Tanco

“Spiritual accompaniment must lead others ever closer to God, in whom we attain true freedom.” Pope Francis says this in his encyclical The Joy of the Gospel. If you have ever wondered what God wants for your life, or had the desire to grow in holiness, or wanted to know how to listen for God’s voice, then you could be a candidate for spiritual direction. More and more people are seeking spiritual directors. Find out exactly what it is, how it’s done, who does it, and why it could help you.

Strengthening the Disciple for Mission: Praying as a Family — Sr. Jane Dominic Laurel, O.P., S.T.D.


Collaborating with Parish Leaders: An Artist’s Perspective — William Frank


C 144/145

Every missionary needs a home-base: a place of warmth, welcome, mutual understanding, and love. That God-given home-base is the family. Deepen the joy of God’s presence in your family by praying as a family. Prayer opens hearts, dissolves resentments, fosters gratitude, builds relationships and serves as a fount of grace, peace, joy, and unity for the whole family. Topics covered include: the power of praying as a family; removing obstacles to family prayer; deepening the love of husband and wife; praying with your spouse; creating sacred times and sacred spaces; drawing your family together through prayer; fostering healthy family relationships; and, pitfalls, pointers, and practical notes. Sponsored by Neuhoff School of Ministry Commissioning art for a parish or school chapel is a collaborative effort between the community and the artist, which has an impact for generations. Through numerous collaborations with parish councils over the past decade, Will has become acutely aware of the difficulties parish leaders face when looking to commission art for their churches. At the same time, he has come to understand what factors contribute to successful commissions. In this session, Will gives insight into the commissioning process. He examines critical issues in contemporary liturgical commissions, explores how to structure a successful collaboration between parish and artist, and reviews several projects in which this collaboration developed artwork that is richer than originally imagined. Session attendants will gain knowledge that they can bring back to their own parish councils.

Becoming Disciples of Prayer: Learning Practical Ways Prayer Can Become Regular and Transforming — Fr. Christopher Schroeder, S.J.

The relationship with God remains always ineffable and mysterious. Yet this overwhelming mystery too often leads people to conclude that prayer itself has to be mysterious, vague, or somehow beyond me and my mundane life. This presentation will seek to bring prayer out of the clouds and the realm of the abstract. While God’s voice is always unpredictable, we can place ourselves in a position to hear it by a variety of concrete skills that can be learned (and therefore, taught!). We are not all called to be experts on “Prayer” or “Spirituality” in the abstract, but we are all called to be experts on “my prayer” and “my spiritual experience” as the foundation for our own relationship with God. This will be a session for anyone who has ever heard the words “I want to pray, but I don’t know how”—whether from their own mouth or from those they minister to! Sponsored by Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House

Pilgrim, Poet, Preacher of the Word: Notes on a Spirituality of Preaching — Daniel Luby, S.T.L., S.T.D.


Don’t Be Defeatist Sourpusses! --Pope Francis — Dr. Mike Brock, LPC


Ballroom 3


Preaching is at the core of Catholic identity and mission. It’s who we are and what we do. Whether as an ordained minister whose preaching is liturgical and public; or as a rank and file Catholic whose preaching is more implicit and personal, it is a demanding call, but viewed through the lens of spirituality, preaching can be a path to communion and holiness and joy. Participants in this session will explore some of the theological foundations, biblical and historical images, and practical implications for a spirituality of preaching, both as listeners and as active preachers. Sponsored by Neuhoff School of Ministry This presentation looks at how we are called to be Jesus to others, healing each other’s hearts through connection, affirmation, and encouragement. At the heart of this presentation is the challenge to look at how we are treating one another. Through the sharing of personal experiences, wisdom gathered through colleagues, students, clients, and teachers, and humor, participants will learn what encouragement--the opposite of “defeatism”--sounds like and looks like and will leave with a personal affirmation statement that offers insight into who they are at the soul level.

Whether we are trying to “build” a catechetical program, “build” a classroom, or “build” or create an environment…we all try to provide the best opportunities for faith formation no matter what setting we are in. But does everyone know that kind of house we want to “build” where all are welcome? Does everyone know what our mission is…forming disciples? In our house, do we provide an environment where young people…and their families…learn about their Catholic identity and traditions to be able to make a faith response to live as a disciple of Jesus, continuing his mission? Instead of doing something different, is it time to do different things? This session will consider the “blueprints” for our house, our goal or mission, as well as the factors and issues that affect “building” a house where all are welcome.

Music Serves the Liturgy. Musicians Serve the People. It’s That Simple. — Peter Kolar

A healthy relationship between the choir and the assembly is built on trust and a spirit of service. The Church envisions our celebrations to be alive with vibrant participation, but this vision is only fulfilled when everyone sings — not just the choir or worship band. Musicians have to be attentive first and foremost to the gathered assembly, with an “assembly-first” mindset guiding crucial decisions from song selection to how the music is performed. All this in the context of the document Sing to the Lord on its 10-year anniversary. Sponsored by World Library Publications

Men and Abortion: His Pain is Real — Reg Platt

Men have long been excluded from the abortion debate by a culture that does not recognize the legitimacy of either their reproductive rights or their feelings. The guilt of helping to kill a child can eventually grow to destroy a man’s relationships, his self-respect and often his whole life. Now, through personal testimony and experience, men who have faced this situation have found a way to guide those still suffering back to the fold, giving witness to the forgiveness of God.

Moving from Silos to Teams — Sal Della Bella, M.A.

Who should be saved? — Sean Callahan

We are taught to love our neighbor, to be a good Samaritan, but there are so many in need - what are we called to do as missionary disciples for our sisters and brothers in need in today’s world? Sponsored by Catholic Relief Services

The God Who Repents: Reconciling God’s Justice and Mercy — Gene Giuliano, M.A.

Are mercy and justice mutually exclusive characteristics of God; two distinct sides of God’s nature? Scripture speaks frequently about divine justice and divine mercy. Interestingly, Old Testament prophets include in their discussion the idea of God “repenting.” Nearly 80% of the time that the term “repent” is used, it describes something God does. This session examines the mystery of a just and merciful God from a biblical perspective and considers how we can possibly reconcile God’s justice and mercy and how the image of a God who “repents” impacts our understanding of who God is and who we are.

Meaningful Inclusion of those with Autism in our Catholic Parish’s — Dcn. Lawrence Sutton, Ph.D.

Children and young adults with Autism are a part of our Catholic Communities. All have the right to be active in our Parish communities in meaningful ways, but require specific preparation, which must be intentional. First, for those not catechized, a good Sacramental Preparation program needs to be in place; secondly, individuals with developmental disabilities can and should be included within the Parish – as Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, Acolytes and Greeters. This Inclusion requires in part, an understanding of autism along with very often simple accommodations. Sponsored by Loyola Press

Making Disciples: What RCIA Tells Us About Faith Formation — Diana Dudoit Raiche, Ph.D.

RCIA offers a type of formation that weaves together as a seamless garment the six tasks of catechesis: knowledge of the faith; knowledge and meaning of liturgy and the sacraments; moral formation in Jesus Christ; praying with Christ; living in community and participating actively in the life and mission of the church; and living in “society” as the place where Christians fulfill their vocation. (NDC, 20) Faith formation through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is much more than another religious education program. This session addresses the interplay of the essential tasks in formation through RCIA and what it’s unique method of faith formation has to offer all other catechetical programs, for it is considered the model for all catechesis.

Empowering Parents in the Faith Formation of their Children — Daniel Mulhall

Parent’s play an essential role in the faith formation of their children--whether they know it or not. The role of the Catholic school or parish faith formation program is to assist parents to form their children in faith, not to replace them. Unfortunately, during the last 100 years the essential role that parents play has been somewhat forgotten and the role of teachers and catechists has been magnified. This presentation will explore both the parental role and the role of teachers and catechist in faith formation. As a result of this session, teachers, catechists and parish faith formation leaders will learn numerous ideas that they can implement to better assist parents to fulfill their essential role.

Ministering in the Midst of Trauma: Helping the Suffering — Gwen Bartlett

If you’re in ministry long enough, you’ll experience a tragedy. How do you minister to the hurting and suffering? What can you say? Should you give them space? Explore these questions with someone who has experienced them firsthand as a teen and youth minister. Gwen Bartlett lost friends in car accidents, suicides, and the Columbine shooting; years later God used her experience as she ministered to others after the death of loved ones. Experiencing these traumatic situations as a teen and youth minister, she’ll share what helps, what doesn’t, and what you can do to prepare and effectively minister during these trying situations.

Grace and Sin in the 21st Century — James McGill, M.A.

Grace draws human nature into the fulfillment for which its infinite self-transcendence longs. Sin distorts human nature when we seek that fulfillment in things that cannot satisfy. These traditional terms have enduring meaning for evangelization and catechesis especially when their understanding, rooted in the tradition of the Church, engages the questions and experiences of people in the 21st century. Sponsored by Neuhoff School of Ministry

Buildings that Send Us Forth — Carol Frenning

Our church buildings ’speak’ to everyone who sees them. This presentation looks at the symbolic content, style and form of our churches and how these can tell the world who we are as disciples of Jesus Christ. Churches are often overlooked as a tool of evangelization. Participants can bring pictures of their churches for us to ‘read’.

Once Jesus had called the Twelve “to be with him and to be sent out to preach” (Mark 3:14), he began to form them as ministers of the Gospel. They listened as he preached, and observed him bring healing and strength to those who were afflicted in any way. Sometimes they succeeded in their imitation of him, and sometimes they failed. This presentation will analyze how Jesus formed the Twelve as they accompanied him, beginning in Galilee and continuing to Jerusalem where he was arrested, tried, executed, and buried. You shouldn’t do ministry on your own. In fact you can’t. You will not only limit the ability to reach more people, but risk burn out. You need a team of competent and committed volunteers. The question is, “Where do you find these people?” The breakout Shape a Dynamic Team talks about practical strategies to recruiting, training and building a healthy and effective ministry team that will help build a healthier and effective parish.

The New Evangelization: The Extraordinary Mission of our Time — Lucas Pollice What exactly is the New Evangelization? Why is it “new” and is this just a buzzword in the Church or is it a real and crucial mission? This session will take an in-depth look at the mission of the New Evangelization and the new ecclesial and cultural realities that make this a truly extraordinary mission for the Church of our day. The session will also explore the key methods and pastoral approaches that will help the gospel reach the minds and hearts of modern men and women. Sponsored by Augustine Institute

Living the Liturgy: Rediscovering our baptismal call to mission and discipleship — Mary Amore, D.Min.

This presentation will plumb the depths of our Eucharistic celebration through four primary symbols of worship: font, ambo, altar and assembly. Participants will explore the ways that these liturgical symbols invite us to experience profound spiritual transformation and spirit filled discipleship.

Starting a Building Program? Advice to help you through what may seem to be a daunting process — James Heck, AIA Whether you are starting your first building project or expanding an existing parish, knowing where to begin can sometimes seem like an overwhelming task. With over thirty-two years of working with churches, Jim will explain the various steps in the building process, offering insights and suggestions to make the process easier. Using actual project experiences and examples, he will discuss a number of topics including: Formation of a Building Committee, Determination of immediate needs and long-term goals, Establishing initial budget parameters, The importance of Master Planning, What to look for in a new site, Determining building programmatic requirements, When and how to contract with architectural and engineering consultants, When is it appropriate to retain a liturgical consultant, When should liturgical artists be involved in your project, What are the distinct roles for the church, architect and contractor on a typical project, Options for contracting for construction services.



The Lord questions the apostles on their understanding of His identity asking them, “Who do you say I am?” (Mk 8:29) As missionary disciples, He continues to ask us the same question. Just like Simon Peter who answers first, Jesus will use our vocation to grow His church based on our faith. Greg Wasinski will inspire attendees to examine their own call to minister in Christ’s image and their responsibility to work as lay evangelizers in the church. This session will identify scriptural passages and Catechism references, along with inspirational insights that identify what is expected of us as Catholic Christian disciples.

El tiempo es ahora: prevención de la normalización del suicidio asistido — Aurora Tinajero

Es inevitable. Todos enfrentamos el final de la vida y las decisiones desafiantes que presenta para nosotros mismos y nuestros seres queridos. ¿Qué pasaría si nuestro gobierno comenzará a hacer esas elecciones más difíciles, o peor, más peligrosas? Averigüe qué es lo que está pasando en este momento en nuestro país y en nuestras comunidades, y lo que nuestra Iglesia quiere que hagamos al respecto.

¿Qué es la espiritualidad bíblica? — Rev. Rafael M. Ramirez, S.S.D.

Aunque las dos conferencias del P. Rafael M. Ramírez (¿Qué es la espiritualidad bíblica? y Construyendo una espiritualidad bíblica) constituyen temas separados, sin embargo están íntimamente unidos. Por este motivo se sugiere participar en ambas. El concilio Vaticano II nos recuerda que la Iglesia ha siempre venerado la Sagrada Escritura al igual que la Eucaristía. A 50 años del concilio, aún queda mucho por hacer para que la Biblia ocupe el lugar que le corresponde en la vida de los fieles católicos como guía para un auténtico discipulado. Esta conferencia pretende responder a las siguientes preguntas: ¿Qué es la espiritualidad bíblica? ¿Por qué es importante? ¿Puede haber una espiritualidad cristiana que no sea bíblica? Patrocinado por Neuhoff School of Ministry

Abraza tus circunstancias personales — Pía Septién, M.T.S.

Hay circunstancias en nuestras vidas que parecen montañas difíciles de escalar, estas pueden ser enfermedades, personas con las que tenemos que tratar en casa o el trabajo, estados de ánimo, situaciones difíciles, etc. En esta conferencia buscaremos encontrar en Cristo la clave para, no solo superar, sino abrazar esas “cruces” que la vida nos da. Miraremos a Cristo en la cruz como el máximo ejemplo de amor y entrega a pesar de… lo que pase. Patrocinado por Neuhoff School of Ministry

Llamado urgente a la nueva evangelización — Luis Soto

El Papa Francisco nos pide que seamos una “Iglesia en salida”, pero no necesariamente significa salir a las calles. Hay que salir a los espacios digitales, a donde la gente se También en encuentra hoy en día. Al nuevo “areópago”, la tecnología digital.

Todos hemos recibido el llamado para ser discípulos misioneros en nuestro Bautismo. ¿Cuáles son las implicaciones personales de este llamado? Veremos algunos documentos de la Iglesia y a varios escritores Católicos que nos ayudan a explorar este tema y responder a: ¿cómo y porqué nutrir nuestra espiritualidad?

Los participantes en esta sesión descubrirán y analizarán retos que los ministerios de música enfrentan, desde la carencia de conocimiento musical o la capacitación para el bajo interés musical del ministerio o la carencia en diferentes estilos musicales. Estaremos presentando soluciones modernas para todos esos retos incorporando el Evangelio Vayan, por lo tanto, y hagan discípulos de gente de todas las naciones, Mateo 28 19-20. Practicaremos nuevas formas y técnicas, la oportunidad de contestar preguntas e intercambiar información con los participantes. Al final de la sesión quedará iluminado e inspirado. ¡No Faltes! Una visión panorámica de la sexualidad, por qué fuimos creados varón y mujer, y cómo evitar la versión pirata del amor y la sexualidad y encontrar una manera de vivirla plenamente según el plan original de Dios.

Pastoral Juvenil 101: Lo que los jóvenes realmente desean y porque debemos dárselo. — Joel De Loera

Este taller es ideal para las familias, maestros, catequistas y ministros de jóvenes. Los que hemos estado en la pastoral juvenil o estado cerca de los jóvenes, se confunden a menudo y, a veces no tienen idea de cómo llegar a ellos y hacerlos participar en actividades relacionadas con la Iglesia. En este taller aprenderás lo que los adolescentes realmente quieren encontrar en la iglesia y por qué debemos dárselo. Con esto en mente, la pastoral con la juventud no debe ser tan complicado como a veces nosotros lo hacemos que parezca. También aprenderán algunas herramientas básicas que les ayudará a relacionarse mejor con los jóvenes de su parroquia.

Amor sin Barreras — Evan Lemoine

Estar juntos no es lo mismo que estar unidos. Muchas parejas a lo mejor están el uno al lado del otro, como agua y aceite, pero todavía se sienten atrapadas en la soledad. Si queremos alcanzar la comunión de amor en nuestra vida de pareja o en nuestra vida espiritual, tenemos que superar varias barreras. En esta conferencia hablaremos de los cinco muros principales que no nos permiten alcanzar la comunión de amor, y los medios para superarlos.

La Hermana Norma Pimentel hablará sobre el llamado universal de recibir a nuestros hermanos y hermanas que son forzados a emigrar de sus países de origen. Un llamado que ha sido dado por Jesús y que ha sido repetido por el Papa Francisco. Es nuestra responsabilidad el asegurarnos que nuestros hermanos y hermanas son tratados con compasión, amor y misericordia. Un recibimiento que los haga sentir bienvenidos y les dé esperanza. La Hermana Norma, abordará este tema compartiendo como el Centro Humanitario en McAllen, TX ha recibido más de 73,000 personas e inspira al mundo a hacer lo mismo.

Sacerdotes como discípulos misioneros: estado actual de la investigación sobre el sacerdocio en América — Fr. Stephen J. Fichter, Ph.D

Ballroom 4 También en inglés en el Periodo 07


Investigador Asociado de CARA, Profesor de Seminario, Pastor y Co-autor de “La Misma Llamada, Hombres Diferentes: La Evolución del Sacerdocio desde Vaticano II (Liturgical Press 2012) hablará como el sacerdocio y el ministerio sacerdotal han cambiado en los Estados Unidos en los últimos cincuenta años. Los temas incluidos son los mayores cambios demográficos que han cambiado la cara de la Iglesia Católica desde Vaticano II, el envejecimiento del sacerdocio, el internacionalismo del sacerdocio, y la más breve curva de aprendizaje antes que los sacerdotes recientemente ordenados se hagan pastores. El Padre Stephen también hablará acerca del incremento de satisfacción y el compromiso creciente reportado por sacerdotes, como también sus fuentes de satisfacción ministerial y sus problemas más comúnmente reportados. En la tercera y final sección de su presentación, el padre abordará tales preocupaciones urgentes para la iglesia de hoy como ministerio colaborativo, ministerio multicultural, ministerio multiparroquial y promoción vocacional.

El canto en la misa, fuente de esperanza — Santiago Fernandez

Homilética catequética: ¡técnicas de comunicación! — Gerardo Salazar

C 146

C 155 También en el Periodo 10

La catequesis es comunicación, muy similar en la manera en que Dios se ha comunicado con la humanidad a través de la Revelación. El arte de comunicar debe ser propio de cada catequista porque ¿cómo hacer llegar el mensaje de salvación y la sana doctrina católica si no es por medio de una eficaz comunicación? Este tema te proveerá de las técnicas adecuadas para hacer una presentación ordenada, sistemática y entendible para la audiencia. La comunicación debe ser clara, precisa y expresiva de tal manera que el mensaje llegue de manera exitosa a cualquier clase de auditorio. Patrocinado por SADLIER

Discipulado misionero: del encuentro a la misión— Obispo Jorge Rodriguez, S.T.D.

El Discipulado Misionero es un tema de gran urgencia y actualidad, dadas las circunstancias por las que atraviesa la Iglesia hoy. El Espíritu Santo está suscitando un nuevo ardor y entusiasmo por la misión. El Pueblo de Dios está redescubriendo su esencia evangelizadora y los hombres y mujeres de nuestro tiempo están sedientos como nunca del agua fresca del Evangelio. El Papa Francisco con su encíclica “El Gozo del Evangelio” nos ofrece inspiración, sugerencias y desafíos para emprender nuestro camino de Discipulado Misionero que va desde el encuentro personal con Jesús Resucitado, pasando por el compromiso del discípulo, a la misión evangelizadora. El Pueblo de Dios que vive en América está llamado a asumir este protagonismo.

La parroquia multicultural: Discípulos frente a los retos de diferencias de cultura y de poder — Brett Hoover, Ph.D.

Por todo el país muchos católicos de culturas diferentes se encuentran en la situación de compartir su parroquia con otras culturas o otros grupos étnicos. ¿Cómo podemos “convivir” en una manera justa y cristiana en medio de tales parroquias? ¿Cómo podemos proteger la dignidad de cada cultura y cada persona mientras guardar nuestra comunión en Cristo?

El Quinto Encuentro: Raíces históricas y propuesta para la renovación pastoral — Tim Matovina, Ph.D. y Hosffman Ospino, M.A., Ph.D. Desde 1972 los Encuentros Nacionales de Pastoral Hispana han inspirado a un sinnúmero de latinos y a otros católicos a vivir su identidad cristiana como líderes eclesiales. La energía de los Encuentros viene de miles de pequeñas comunidades de fe en parroquias y diócesis, convirtiéndose así en gran fuerza de renovación católica. El proceso de cuatro años del Quinto Encuentro Nacional de Pastoral Hispana/Latina Comenzó en el 2017 y concluirá en el 2020. Habrá una reunión nacional en el 2018 en Forth Worth/Dallas. Ésta es una oportunidad única para la planeación pastoral, la formación de líderes, la consulta y la evangelización, involucrando cerca de 1 millón de católicos. ¡Ven y descubre más sobre este gran momento en nuestra Iglesia!

Familia: Jesús resucitado te llama a dar testimonio — Hno. Ricardo Grzona, frp

La institución más atacada en estos momentos en la sociedad es la familia. Vemos cómo se gestan movimientos externos que pretenden acabar con el plan que Dios nos dejó reservado a la humanidad sobre la familia. La confusión de muchas familias es poder dar hoy un testimonio cristiano frente a sus hijos y darles herramientas para poder abordar las diferentes corrientes que quieren llevar a la familia donde Dios no tiene pensado. Abordaremos algunos problemas actuales, buscando dar respuestas desde la Palabra de Dios y haremos un ejercicio de Lectio Divina para la familia.



Según el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica, “la familia cristiana es evangelizadora y misionera” (CIC 2205). Pero la realidad es que muchas familias no están viviendo de acuerdo a su llamado. Lo que es peor, ¡es que muchas familias lo desconocen! En este taller los participantes aprenderán acerca de este llamado de cada miembro de la familia a ser discípulo de Cristo y sobre todo, cómo vencer esos obstáculos que nos impiden realizar la tarea que nuestro Señor nos ha encomendado. Este taller es ideal para toda la familia, maestros, catequistas y para cualquier persona que sirva en algún grupo de la parroquia. Animo familia, ¡Con Cristo, todo es posible!

La música en servicio a la liturgia. Los músicos en servicio al pueblo. — Peter Kolar

Una relación saludable entre los músicos y la asamblea es basada en un espíritu de servicio que trae confianza. La visión de nuestra Iglesia es que las celebraciones litúrgicas están llenas de una participación vibrante, pero esto se puede realizar sólo cuando todos cantemos — no sólo el coro. Los músicos tienen que estar atentos, sobre todo, al pueblo reunido, exhibiendo una mentalidad de “primero la asamblea” en todas sus decisiones, desde la selección de cantos hasta cómo se realizan esos arreglos en vivo. Todo esto en el contexto del documento sobre la música Cantemos al Señor, en su décimo aniversario de implementación. Patrocinado por World Library Publications

El Credo: Un encuentro con la fe de la Iglesia. — Hosffman Ospino, M.A., Ph.D.

Todo cristiano católico debe estar dispuesto a hablar de su fe con entusiasmo y con un buen nivel de confianza. A veces nos preguntan qué creemos y por qué creemos, pero es posible que no tengamos el lenguaje o las ideas claras para hablar de ello. Por muchos siglos El Credo ha sido la mejor fórmula de fe que resume la riqueza de lo que somos como cristianos. En este taller exploraremos cómo el Credo nos ofrece una oportunidad única para reencontrarnos con la belleza de ser discípulos cristianos que anuncian su fe a tiempo y a destiempo. Será una invitación a enamorarnos de nuevo de la fe que nos inspira y nos identifica. Este taller es para ti. Patrocinado por Ave Maria Press y Our Sunday Visitor

La Imagen de Santa María de Guadalupe en la Tilma de San Juan Diego — Laura Castillo


La misionariedad del discípulo — Hno. Ricardo Grzona, frp


C 146


El tema es la investigación acerca del Acontecimiento Guadalupano desde el punto de vista científico, uniendo razón y fe. Es el mensaje de amor de Santa María de Guadalupe a través de las palabras del Nican mopohua, donde Jesús es el centro de este encuentro; es el análisis del significado protector de la Tilma; es una muestra de los elementos que conforman la maravillosa Imagen de la Santísima Virgen que conservamos el la Basílica del Tepeyac y es un camino que nos lleva de la mano a este encuentro con la madre del verdadero Dios por quien se vive, reflexionando como en este hecho histórico, el pasado se hace presente y el encuentro de 1531 es hoy con cada uno de nosotros. En muchas oportunidades confundimos la evangelización con los contenidos de la fe. La transmisión de la fe pareciera solamente el aprendizaje de libros y conceptos. Sin embargo, está ligada indisolublemente al mensajero, al testigo. Quien acepta a Jesús, no es por teorías, sino por un encuentro con una persona, la de Cristo. Aceptar a Jesús es mucho más que aceptar un mensaje, es aprender a relacionarse con el Señor y seguirlo. Sin embargo, el seguimiento de Jesús implica darlo a conocer. La historia de la Iglesia nos recuerda que los discípulos son misioneros, son testigos. En la conferencia aprenderemos formas de abrir nuestro corazón a poder dar testimonio de nuestra cercanía con Cristo resucitado.

La catequesis ofrece recursos y materiales que no dejan de ser un contenido que debe ser atractivo para nuestra audiencia. Nuestra publicidad es de alguna manera el reflejo del contenido de nuestros programas. Recordemos que nuestros programas y recursos deben ser atractivos para los padres de familia y los hijos, por tal razón, el mercadeo y la publicidad nos ofrecen ciertas pautas que nos permiten ofrecer nuestro ministerio catequético de una manera gráfica, explícita y muy atractiva para la audiencia.

Vivir y Transmitir una Sexualidad Plena — Evan Lemoine

Esta es una introducción a la Teología del Cuerpo aplicada a la vivencia plena de la comunión de amor en la vocación matrimonial. Es la receta que ofrece Dios para la intimidad conyugal.
