Are you prepared to meet the challenges of ministry in the world around you? The Diocese of Orlando invites you to a one day retreat to focus on church ministry and how we can grow to be the disciples God is calling us to be.
The face of Catholicism is changing and so are our ministry frameworks. In today’s multicultural pluralistic society the Church must facilitate an integrated vision of partnership, dialogue, and collaboration. The parish is called to renew its mission as a center of evangelization and outreach – a beacon of transformation – that brings about God’s kingdom. Ministry must be increasingly people-centered and Christ-focused. What does this look like? What is the Church’s mission of evangelization? What does it mean to be a disciple? And, how do we get there?
“New Wine in Old Wineskins II” is designed for all of Christ’s faithful who are involved in parish or diocesan ministry. A keynote address will focus on Discipleship and Mission in the Church Today presented by Dennis Johnson Jr., Senior Director, Diocese of Orlando Office of Faith Formation.

“People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.” Matthew 9:17
