May 14, 2020, 9:00am America/New_York

Prof. Jane E. Regan draws on the “communities of practice” model as a way for catechetical and pastoral leaders to leverage existing parish activities for effective faith formation for adults.  This workshop explores the role of learning in context, the nature of communities of practice within the larger faith community, and the opportunity for intentionally evangelizing the adults who participate in them.
