Caring for a Dynamic Team of Volunteers
Presented by: Christopher Wesley
Date: Apr 7, 2020
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

We all know that we can't lead on our own, but recruiting, managing, and caring for a team of volunteers can be a challenge (especially if you are part-time or a volunteer). In this webinar, Wesley will share simple tips and strategies that will help parishes recruit, manage, train, and care for a team of volunteers who can take ministry to the next level.



Teaching Catholic Youth to Think Critically
Presented by: Stacy Trasancos
Date: Apr 14, 2020
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

As a teacher or minister, how can you guide young people to seek the truth in areas such as science while maintaining their faith?

Stacy A. Trasancos, executive director of the St. Philip Institute of Catechesis and Evangelization in the Diocese of Tyler and author of Particles of Faith: A Catholic Guide to Navigating Science, will share the fundamental tools that will help you encourage young people to think critically without being derailed by temptation.



Running on Empty or Powered by Prayer? Tips to Rejuvenating Your Prayer Life to Build Your Ministry
Presented by: Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet
Date: Apr 21, 2020
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

What’s the secret to taking your prayer life to the next level? Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet say that it’s all about spending time with God, rather than demanding things from him. In this webinar, Faehnle and Jaminet share basic prayer principles that have helped them to become women of prayer, including encouraging stories, practical advice, and tips from the lives and writings of the saints. Learn how these practices can help fuel an active life of ministry in the Church for you, too.



What Parish Leaders Should Know about Ministering to Couples Experiencing Infertility
Presented by: Angelique Ruhi-Lopez and Carmen Santamaria
Date: May 12, 2020
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

Infertility affects approximately one in six couples in the United States. For many Catholic couples, the Church is the natural place to look for help and much-needed support. In order to offer healing and hope for the journey, it is important to first understand what infertility is and how it affects couples. In this webinar, Angelique Ruhi-Lopez and Carmen Santamaria, authors of The Infertility Companion for Catholics, will offer tips, advice, and resources in order to provide spiritual and practical support for couples facing infertility.  




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.
