NETWORK Workshop: Enculturated Evangelization – The Call for Missionary Disciples Today
November 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
A virtual series for leaders and volunteers in Youth, Young Adult, and Family & Children Ministries
Encounter with the living Jesus Christ leads to conversion, communion and solidarity. (St. Pope JPII Ecclesia in America 1999) Mary encountered Jesus and was transformed. This makes Her the perfect example of a Missionary Disciple. What can we learn about the importance of culture when we hope to evangelize others as Missionary Disciples?
Bishop Bryan Joseph Bayda, C.Ss.R.,
Eparch of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Toronto
Born August 21, 1961 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Bishop Bryan particularly loves writing songs and his Redemptorist formation deepened his thirst for preaching as he encourages others to be Missionary Disciples. The motto on his coat of arms – You Will Be My Witnesses – is based on Acts 1:8 “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and You Will Be My Witnesses.” A special devotion to Mary as the Mother of Perpetual Help and as Our Lady of Guadalupe sustains him in his Ukrainian Catholic faith since She is key in understanding Missionary Discipleship and Enculturated Evangelization. On May 2, 2008 Pope Benedict XVI appointed him as Bishop and he was ordained June 27, 2008 for the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon. Appointed by Pope Francis, on June 27, 2022 he was installed as Eparch of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Toronto.
Cost: $15 CND
