Invite a speaker to your parish:
Invite the Director of Pro-Life Advocacy, Carolyn Cannizzaro, to present on Listening a Person into Life: The Art of Being Present, from the Sister of Life Religious Order and the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Guadium (Joy of the Gospel), Pope Francis. We’ll explore the importance of listening as part of evangelization. We’ll discover the importance of being present to others and how it can build our Parish Community. Contact Carolyn here.
Invite the Director of Pro-Life Activities, Father Dan Carr, to speak on Authentic Living: IRL in a World of Virtual Reality. Virtual reality continues to become more advanced and more pervasive in ways we never imagined. Amid wide-spread virtualization, how can a more authentic living bring us back to reality and make us more pro-life?
