“Pray and Proclaim!”


Saturday, April 6 2019
9:00 AM – 2:30 PM
Nativity of Our Lord Parish
Sacred Heart Hall
529 Stephenson Street, Duryea

Presented by Dr. Maria Poggi Johnson and Kitty Scanlan

Dr. Maria Poggi Johnson will give introduction to basic public speaking techniques, and provide opportunity for participants to try out these methods.

Kitty Scanlan will discuss topics such as: Why do we pray? How do we pray? What are some ideas and resources for planning prayer with groups, or in the classroom? The ways in which ministers cultivate spirituality outside of the Mass not only enriches Sunday worship but can bring the reality of God into our everyday lived experience.

Dr. Poggi Johnson is a professor of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Scranton.
Kitty Scanlan is the Coordinator for Lay Ministry Formation for the Diocese of Scranton in the Office for Parish Life.

Sessions in this series are eligible as workshop credits for candidates in the Diocesan Certificate in Lay Ministry.
