  • English

As the Church continues to search for creative means to reach out to the unaffiliated, this Field Guide is designed to be a practical tool to inform ongoing discernment, as well as a resource for the use of effective principles for formation of missionary disciples. This Field Guide identifies organizations and apostolates which might serve as effective models for Catholic leaders across the country. The list of organizations is not intended to be exhaustive, nor is it meant to be an  approbation of all their work; rather, organizations were chosen that exemplify certain dimensions of effective outreach to spur the imagination of those in the field. Included in each section are a sampling of insights and relevant anecdotes from leaders of different apostolates.
