CATHOLICISM: The New ​Evangelization

Add Content Block

The Catholic Faith is not about myths or legends, symbols or literary devices. It’s about an encounter so overwhelming that you want to tell the whole world. It is an encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout history the call of Christ has sent people to the corners of the earth with a message of great joy, a message that has built civilizations, inspired cultures, and even sent some to prisons and to their graves.
We have the same call - that’s the New Evangelization.

Lesson 1 – Introduction 

​This documentary from Bishop Barron continues the story of CATHOLICISM and explores the Church’s mission ​amid the challenges of contemporary culture. Experience our Faith in action in CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization.

​This 90-minute documentary tells us what the New Evangelization is and then takes us on a fascinating tour to witness examples of new ardor, new expressions, and new methods of evangelization in action. In addition to the documentary, there are four hours of extra features, including two of Bishop Barron’s speeches and full interviews with George Weigel, Ross Douthat, Brad Gregory, and Brandon Vogt, which provide insights on faith and culture.

The video-based study program can be experienced individually or in a group.  Groups meet for seven 90-mintue sessions to explore what ​the New Evangelization is and how to do it.  Each session includes video viewing and small group discussion of the Study Guide questions. Participants read the commentary in the Study Guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be done either before or after they view the video, as the Commentary in each lesson is very detailed. The Study Guide Commentary was written under the direction of Bishop Barron by Brandon Vogt, Word on Fire Content Director and expert on the Church and the new media.

In addition to the Commentary, each section of the study guide includes “Questions for Understanding" based on Bishop Barron’s video presentation, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church  and “Questions for Application" that help you connect the material to your own life and experience.

 Leaders can also register for a free training webinar which teaches the best ways to run an effective New Evangelization study group.

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, study guide, facilitator guide, answer key, and prayer cards.

​Lesson Five: “New Methods”

​Bishop Barron calls for “using the means and methods of our time to evangelize.” We gain insight from J.R.R. Tolkien, a fantasy fiction writer, and Archbishop Fulton Sheen who won an Emmy for his Catholic preaching on a major, non-religious television network.

Bishop Barron encourages us all to use new means of communication, such as the Internet and social media, to evangelize today. Also, Catholic groups that are evangelizing with the new media are featured.
