The Archdiocese of Boston's Secretariat for Evangelization and Discipleship is hosting a full-day conference, INTENTIONAL DISCIPLESHIP: CALLED, for all Catholics seeking to learn more about the call to discipleship for themselves and for their families, communities, and parishes.

Keynote speakers include Gina Bauer, a dynamic, entertaining speaker, teacher, and trainer with over 30 years' experience in youth ministry; Dr. Hosffman Ospino, Associate Professor of Hispanic Ministry and Religious Education at Boston College's School of Theology and Ministry; and Dr. Scott Powell, Director of the Aquinas Institute for Catholic Thought, an outreach to the University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Powell also co-founded, with his wife Annie, Camp Wojtyla, a Catholic outdoor adventure program for youth based in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Breakout sessions include the family as domestic church; engaging parents in faith formation; discipleship in high school and college; witnessing in the workplace; ministering with people with a disability; recognizing and cultivating gifts/charisms; and panel discussions on fostering a culture of vocations and accompanying someone in their discernment process.

An additional Evening session with Katie Prejean McGrady, a dynamic and engaging Catholic speaker and author of Follow: Your Lifelong Adventure with Jesus and Room 24: Adventures of a New Evangelist.

The conference will feature exhibits from national Catholic publishers and organizations displaying the latest faith formation tools and resources in print and online.
