September 20, 2014 General Session.

Foster Evangelical Outreach

In addition to the questions identified in each of the four presentations, Bishop Caggiano challenged the Synod Delegates to dig deeper.  He put forward the following questions to help the Synod more clearly identify the challenges that we face as the Diocese of Bridgeport.

Foster Evangelical Outreach

  1. What is the good news of the Gospel? And personalize it, what is the good news of the Gospel to me?
  2. The means we use matter – At the heart of Evangelization is the recognition of the Truth (Jesus Christ) vs. truths of the Faith (the things we profess and believe).
    1. How do you convey both?
  3. There was a time when people came to us; now we have to go to them – how do you propose to do this, one person at a time?
  4. Who do people say that I am? What does the world (for example; Catholics who are no longer with us, social media, or Oprah Winfrey) say about Jesus Christ?  Who do you say that I am?
