Date: November 15, 2016
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Drawing from her in depth study of the life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Dr. Susan Muto will introduce twelve ways to transform the hearts of parish ministers. These ways range from learning to appreciate the richness of the ordinary to trusting divine mercy.

The Witness Webinar: Learning to Tell the Stories of Grace that Illumine Our Lives
Presented by: Leonard J. DeLorenzo, author of Witness: Learning to Tell the Stories of Grace That Illumine Our Lives
Date: December 6, 2016
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Recent research shows that the single greatest difference between those who identify as Catholic and those as former-Catholics is "the belief that God is a personal being involved in the lives of people today." If we are to shape our whole lives as a Christian story, we must first learn how to recognize, craft, and share stories of grace about particular life experiences. We will focus on seven principles for crafting stories of grace for teens, young adults, and even not-so-young-anymore adults that allow us to speak of God's action in our lives persuasively and in real terms.




The opportunity to participate in these webinars is wonderful. Thank you so much for offering them. It is great to be able to consider important issues and hear from such very good presenters without having to leave my office (which I might not be able to do)! This is a great service that Ave Maria is offering. I am most appreciative.
