Office of Evangelization & Discipleship

There is a pressing need to frame everything in terms of evangelization, as the fundamental principle that guides ecclesial activity as a whole.”
Directory for Catechesis (2020), no. 297

Welcome! We are here to support leaders in cultivating disciples of Jesus Christ.

What We Do: The Office of Evangelization and Discipleship (OED) serves and supports pastors and ministry leaders in the mission of evangelizing, catechizing, and pastorally accompanying the whole community—with special attention to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to cultivating paths of discipleship for the renewal of parish and family life.

How We Serve: OED seeks to build relationships with leaders who serve parish, campus and family life and to advance a culture of prayer, teamwork, and discipleship.
