DESCRIPTION: A Christian Witness in the World: Ministry Series: Being a Catholic in an increasingly secular society is not always easy. Many in the Church feel discouraged or unsure of how to articulate what we believe as Catholics, to our loved ones or colleagues and how to navigate controversial topics like euthanasia, or teachings on Catholic social doctrine. These five modules are designed to inspire and empower participants to realize their call in the mission of Christ to share the Gospel in all places, at all times. Through the stories and experiences of the speakers, participants will receive insights and tools for sharing the Gospel in their own families, explaining what Catholics believe from a Catholic moral perspective, and understanding Christian solidarity towards refugees, migrants and those affected by human trafficking.ADULT FAITH home page
