INSTITUTE FOR Evangelization
Pastoral Staff Day 2022
 

Mission

The Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Institute for Evangelization is a new model for engagement with parishes seeking to realize their evangelizing mission more fully.

The Institute is composed of four offices that collaborate closely to ensure that support is never “one-size fits all” but can adapt to the changing needs of each parish community.

We strive to accompany parish leaders so that they can “enliven the evangelizing work of the local Church” (LBV, 2.0, 30).

EMMAUS TEAMS FOR
PARISH RENEWAL

The first step for your parish is to find your “Emmaus Team” through the Office of Parish Renewal. These two-person teams from the Institute provide individualized support to pastors and parish leaders through facilitated discussions, training, and formation.
