"Intentional Discipleship: Our Fundamental Catholic Identity" is a video produced as part of the District Gatherings that will be held across the Archdiocese of Milwaukee this year in preparation for the Archdiocesan Synod, which will take place June 7-8, 2014. The content of this video was developed based on an introductory letter written by Bishop Donald Hying, which will be included in each of the eight Synod Background Papers that were written for these preparatory efforts. With intentional discipleship as the catalyst, small groups will discuss how we can strengthen the mission of the Church in each of these eight areas: Catholic Social Teaching, Cultural Diversity, Evangelization, Formation, Leadership, Liturgy, Marriage and Family and Stewardship. The hope of the Synod will be to re-energize Catholics in their faith and inspire a new evangelization within the Church of southeastern Wisconsin.
This video showcases Bishop Donald Hying and parishioners from across the archdiocese providing insight on the topic of intentional discipleship. Viewers of this video are encouraged to promote and share it in available channels such as e-mail, Facebook, parish Web sites and other available social media channels.
