"The 99 Experience"
Join us for "The 99 Experience," an opportunity to grow in our faith and for our parish to become an even stronger and more inviting community. The 99 Experience is for everyone. Learn from leading Catholic evangelization experts in The 99 Masterclass. This series teaches Catholics the most effective ways to share the good news of Jesus with the world. Join us as we build a movement of evangelization and learn to grow in Catholic community.
What is The 99?
The 99 is a resource designed to empower all those who serve the Church, in the work of evangelization. If we want to be effective evangelists, we must continually be growing in our relationship with Jesus and in our relationships with our co-workers in the vineyard. We must find ways to engage the many Catholics who are currently unengaged. This resource offers a way to build an evangelization team, form new relationships, and grow community.
Who is the 99 for?
The 99 Masterclass videos and guide are designed to help any Catholic learn principles and practical tools for effective evangelization from seasoned experts in the field, but it has a specific focus on helping parish-based teams (parish staff, dedicated volunteers, and engaged parishioners) prepare to implement an evangelization plan using The 99 Experience and The 99 Handbook. While The 99 Experience videos and The 99 Handbook are designed to be beneficial and informative for every Catholic, they have a particular focus on reaching out to those who are not fully engaged in their relationship with Jesus and the Church. The 99, then, has been intentionally created to be accessible to everyone, meeting them where they are and engaging them, regardless of their knowledge of the Church’s teachings.
How is The 99 a “new system for evangelization”?
We know that programs do not evangelize; people do. Our hope is that The 99 will be a new “toolkit” for Catholics to evangelize more effectively at the parish level and beyond. The 99 is ultimately about building community—for it is in community that effective evangelization takes place.
