The CatholicTV® Network to Exhibit at the New England Adult Faith Formation Symposium
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (August 14, 2012) – From August 16-17, 2012, the CatholicTV Network is set to exhibit at the 2012 New England Adult Faith Formation Symposium.
The Adult Faith Formation Symposium is a 24-hour enrichment opportunity for anyone involved in ministering to adults. Held every two years, the Symposium is presented by the New England Conference of Diocesan Directors of Religious Education (NECDDRE). This year’s theme is “Reaching 21st Century Disciples in the Year of Faith.”
The keynote presentations and workshops will help parish leaders of Adult Faith Formation to break open the Church’s mission of evangelization in an increasingly secular and technologically advanced society. The New Evangelization mission has gained new life throughout the Church with Pope Benedict XVI declaring October 2012 through October 2013 “The Year of Faith.” Through this symposium, the NECDDRE aims to begin “The Year of Faith” in New England.
