The Adult Evangelization & Discipleship Office exists to help parishes and individual adults fulfill their mission to evangelize. It is tasked with promoting awareness of each Christian’s responsibility to share the Gospel, encouraging both parishes and individuals in this sacred duty, and providing training and resources, with emphasis on evangelization methods specially suited to proclaiming the Good News in our multicultural society.

The Office is currently focused on the following initiatives:

Project Timothy

Project Timothy is a small-group evangelization strategy using the model and materials of Catholic Christian Outreach, adapted for a parish context.  In it, groups of 4-6 parishioners participate in a series of faith studies which invite conversion, equip participants to follow and share Christ, and then commission them to “multiply” by evangelizing others.  The Project began in several parishes in the Archdiocese of Vancouver in 2012, and is coordinated by the Adult Evangelization & Discipleship Office and a team of volunteer leaders.  For more information, click here.

Begun summer 2013
