ALPHA and Renew My Church Summit
Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Host Beth White and Co-Host Jenn Delvaux from the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship were joined by Javier Castillo, Lifelong Formation Coordinator for Vicariate IV, and Chelsea Piper, Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Together, they discussed their experience of participating in an ALPHA pilot program hosted over the summer at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Centers. ALPHA is an evangelization tool that, if used well and with intention, can help parishes create an evangelizing culture. Fr. Peter Wojcik, Director of the Department of Parish Vitality and Mission, and Marco Oropeza, Chief Programs Officer, joined the conversation for the second half of the show. They shared information about the upcoming Renew My Church Summit that will take place October 1-2 as well as their experience in participating in the ALPHA Pilot.
