 Msgr. Clay Offers Conference on Evangelization in the Catechumenate

Msgr. Michael Clay, Associate Professor of Practice, led a one-day conference on the importance of evangelization as a foundational element in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults for initiation catechists in the Archdiocese of New Orleans on September 23.  The conference focused on the initial period of formation, the Period of Evangelization and Precatechumenate, and showed how the ritual text highlights evangelization during the inquiry period, what basic evangelization topics are to be covered, and demonstrated some techniques on how to evangelize.
