Rural Outreach and Ministry

Join us for the second in a series of three webinars featuring panelists on a topic discussed from an authentic and diverse Catholic perspective. The second topic will be on Thursday, October 26th at 11am Central time.

How do rural Catholics share in the mission of the Church and teach the faith? Rural evangelization carries unique challenges and opportunities and requires a tailored response to be successful. Join Catholic Rural Life for a discussion with Church leaders who are engaged in rural evangelization; you’ll hear their real experiences and best practices for evangelizing in rural areas, parishes, and communities.
