The Office of Adult Discipleship & Evangelization is dedicated to forming and equipping missionary disciples with opportunities to encounter Jesus Christ, to grow in knowledge of His teaching, and to share Him with others.

  • Parish Talks - Dr. Chris visits parishes around the diocese to lead open conversations about current topics concerning the faith.
  • Workshops - Dr. Chris can come to your parish to lead a specialized workshop for your parishioners or parish staff.


  • Our purpose is equipping the laity throughout the diocese for Missionary Discipleship.
  • Participants receive formation in four key areas: Intellectual, Spiritual, Human, and Apostolic.
