The Parish as a School of Discipleship

The Diocese of Manchester and RCL Benzinger Publishers cordially invite you to a Continuing Formation Workshop for Cathechetical Leaders, Pastoral Associates, RCIA Coordinators, and Youth & Young Adult Ministers.

“I never knew that I was a disciple.”

Join us for an interactive experience which will provide participants an opportunity to explore questions such as:

What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus and not merely a follower?
How can we integrate formation and action for discipleship?
What are the best practices that foster discipleship?
