Parishes are invited, during the last phase of RenewMy Church, to form an evangelization team. The primary responsibility of the Evangelization team at our parish is to assist the pastor in building a new reality in the parish. But how does this new reality look like in practical terms? A new reality in parish life is when each ministry actively promotes three imperatives: Making disciples, building community, and inspiring witness.
The Alpha course serves as a soft-landing spot for people new to the Catholic faith to engage in a faith-based conversation. SMTCP offers the Alpha course in two different languages, Mandarin and English. A Cantonese Alpha will soon be on the way! In addition to Alpha, our Evangelization team collaborates with the pastor to foster and activate missionary discipleship in every parish ministry.
For more information about evangelization at SMTC, please contact Dr. Thomas Howard or Jing Zhang at the Parish Office, either by email or by calling 312-842-6777 (STWS) or 312-842-7979 (SBWS).
