Webinar Dec. 4 uncovers new trends in evangelization

November 30, 2012

Evangelization might be an ages-old term for the process of spreading the news of God’s saving grace to the world, but that process has come a long way since the days of Jesus. In fact, spreading the good news is now happening through social media and other new and exciting ways. Those new evangelization trends are the topic of a webinar Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. featuring Loyola Institute for Ministry assistant professor Daniella Zsupan-Jerome, Ph.D.

The webinar is free and open to the public, but spaces are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Register online.

Following the Second Vatican Council, evangelization is re-emerging as a key word to define the mission and identity of the church, according to Zsupan-Jerome. The “new evangelization,” a phrase coined by Pope John Paul II, focuses especially on the need to reach out to Catholics who have drifted away from the community of faith.

Zsupan-Jerome is the author of “Daily Prayer 2013” published by Liturgical Training Publications.
