Catholic Apostolate Center Launches Consulting Services
While the Center has identified these three areas of expertise, we are more than willing to work with a group to discern what types of consulting will suit their needs. "No single technique, approach, or method will assist Church ministries in discerning the best way to develop and go forth. The Catholic Apostolate Center consults through accompaniment on the road leading toward greater fruitfulness in Christ," said Fr. Frank Donio, S.A.C., Director of the Center.
The Center understands that each parish, diocese, and Catholic ministry is unique - each with its own challenges and opportunities. As Fr. Frank notes, we approach our consulting as a way of walking with and collaborating with you as partners in pursuit of a common goal. One program of note, exemplifying this idea, is a pilot program with the Archdiocese of Washington begun in 2013 called Apostles on Mission.
This program gives active young adult Catholics the tools and experience needed to be evangelizers to their families, parishes, and communities. A young adult participant in the spring 2016 session remarks, "Apostles on Mission reminded me that I shouldn't expect to see the conversion of every person I talk to about faith. I only need to be willing and open to the Holy Spirit to work through me. God will handle the rest!" Learn more about this program at ApostlesOnMission.org.
The Catholic Apostolate Center welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with your ministry to help you develop more fully and go forth, as Christ calls all of us to do. Our experts will assist you in making discerned, inspired, and mission-oriented decisions that lead to greater fruitfulness in your ministry or organization.
We seek to meet you where you are now, and walk with you on the road. Learn more and contact us to schedule an initial discernment session at CatholicConsulting.org.
The Catholic Apostolate Center is a ministry of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate (Pallottines) - Immaculate Conception Province. It was founded in 2011 to respond to the needs of the Church through developing - in collaboration with dioceses and other institutions and organizations - formation programs for the New Evangelization; assisting pastoral leaders in deepening collaboration with one another; and providing formation opportunities for members and collaborators of the Union of Catholic Apostolate.
The Center takes its inspiration from the spirituality of St. Vincent Pallotti and achieves its goals through hosting conferences, seminars, webinars, and presentations as well as providing online and print resources.
