- Katie Muller, ECHO alumna and Youth Ministry Director, St. Paul, St. Petersburg
- Noah Franske, Notre Dame Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) teacher at St. Petersburg Catholic High School
- Walter Pruchnik ACE alumnus and employee of the Diocese of St. Petersburg
in a discussion about how we are all called to be part of the new evangelization called for by our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI and his predecessor the Venerable John Paul II, as living witness of the Gospel, teaching others about Christ and His Church – catechizing – by the way we live our lives.
Discerning how each of us will do that in our lives is not usually simple, so what each of these speakers will talk about is how they have answered this call up to this point in their lives. Their stories will show you that it’s not always easy, but as we have heard in the past three weeks, we are GATHERED by our Lord around the altar to be NOURISHED by His Body and Blood and are SENT into the world to proclaim the Good News of salvation.
