PTB 1 : What is a Parish Covenant and How Can it Help my Parish

 

ERIC HASELHORST AND LEISA ANSLINGER

WHAT IS A PARISH COVENANT AND HOW CAN IT HELP MY PARISH                   COVENANT INFLUENCED STEWARDSHIP IN MY PARISH

 

Does my parish expect enough from the people it serves? In a live Q and A I answered questions about stewardship and one of the questions I received was "Do we not expect enough from our parishioners". I answered the question by sharing that some sort of document could be drafted laying out what parishioners can expect from their parish and what what the parish expects from parishioners. That all office staff and a pastor need to do it draft the document and put it in place following a model outlined in the book Growing An Engaged Church.

While at the International Catholic Stewardship Conference in Orlando Florida I sat in on a session about parish covenants and found that real parishes are using this idea to make a difference in the life and lives of the people they serve.

MORE SPECIFICALLY, IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Why parishioners need and want to know what is expected of them.
  • The process to create a parish covenant.
  • How does a covenant increase engagement for the people in the pews.
  • The four pillars of growth and connection in the community.
  • Can a parish start from scratch or incorporate a covenant into an existing renewal process?
  • How a Priest can introduce the covenant into a parish.
  • How to deal with push back introducing a new idea.
  • Results over time by using a parish covenant.

PTB : 24 Loving Our Fallen Away Family Members back to Church

ERIC HASELHORST, carrie gress

Loving our fallen away family members back to church

I found Carrie by complete accident via an email list I subscribe to. Her book title Nudging Conversions sounds interesting so I followed the link and quickly decided to invite her on the podcast. Most places I go it is not uncommon to find someone who has a loved one away from the church and they long for that person to come back. But how?! Carrie does a marvelous job explaining how we can love our family back to the faith with our having to "sell" them the faith. It is a beautiful conversation and life giving. Enjoy.

MORE SPECIFICALLY, IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Agony and pain is common with fallen away family members, but it doesn't have to be
  • Rather than change our family members, we can change ourselves

  • Before evangelizing ask "How's my prayer life"
  • Evangelization does not have to be about confrontation
  • Questions can be powerful conversion tools
  • God loves fallen away Catholics more that we do
