This is especially critical when in conversation with those who disagree with us. This workshop is all about effective and, charitable communication through the lens of our Christian faith. This workshop aims to empower you as a Christian communicator no matter your vocation. This discussion features two extraordinary Catholic leaders and communicators: Catholic author and speaker Leah Perrault; and, Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation producer and host, Deacon Pedro Guevara-Mann. RSVP at www.communicatecatholic.eventbrite.ca  for webinar log-in details.

Your gifts make parish life truly vibrant and help fulfill the mission of loving God and neighbour.
