Dare to believe

Dare to believe

“Faith,” I write in my latest book, Dare to Believe, Rise Up to Act, “is not so much adherence to a set of beliefs as a readiness to step out of the boat, at Jesus’ invitation, and respond to this challenge, this particular invitation, to live vulnerably, and to act courageously.”

The Dare to Believe Parish Process

The two key components include:

  1. A two-day Pastoral Leaders Inservice for diocesan or regional pastoral leaders, faith formators, Catholic educators: foundation for your Dare to Believe parish application
  2. A weekend Parish Immersion for laity engaged in the life of the church and life in the world

Fill out the menu with these events:

  • A weekend Family Camp for home church
  • A weekend Youth Challenge for senior high
  • A weekend Youth Challenge for junior high
  • Accountability Circles: Guided small groups for spiritual growth, discernment, and
    accountability for engagement in the world
  • Pentecost Visioning Day
  • Ongoing Rapid Response Networks
  • Quarterly Check-ins plus consultation with pastoral and catechetical leaders as
    needed
