Are you magnetic? Are you equipped to experience the faith in your heart, in your home with your family, with your friends and co-workers? Do you attract people by your curious and meaningful life? 

Jesus calls us in both the great commandment and great commission to be in deep loving relationship with him and to share the roadmap and journey with others to him. Your own soul and the eternal destiny of your family and friends are tied to embracing Christ and sharing the gateway to his heart. 

The archdiocesan office of evangelization is offering Days of Equipping to send parish leaders home with simple and effective tools for both experiencing and witnessing the good news of the Gospel. The approach and many of the tools can be found online at:

Experiencing and passing on the faith is about magnetic living and relationships that are rooted in Jesus Christ. We invite you to dive into our eucharistic revival website — — to find face-to-face experiences that will leave you better equipped to listen, care and respond.

One of those experiences, Behold KC, coming on May 4 will be a powerful day of witness. 

The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas and the Diocese of  Kansas City — St. Joseph in Missouri are joining forces to recognize Our Lord in the Eucharist and to plead for his blessing over Kansas City, over both respective dioceses, our country and the world. 

This event is inspired by the prayers, hopes and dreams of  those in a 1941 photograph taken at the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, of some 8,000 Catholics praying while facing the massive Great Frieze, which represents the progression of humankind from war to peace.

Join us at the Liberty Memorial to literally pray over Kansas City and witness Christ’s openness, readiness and fullness to the city. 

Check out Behold KC online at: This is a free event. Behold KC will include Mass, confession, nationally recognized live musical talent, local choirs and the largest public eucharistic adoration opportunity in our city in more than 80 years.

This summer, Camp Tekakwitha (, will be equipping youth and families to pray, care and share the freedom and assurance of walking with the Lord.  Additionally, the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage, (, will be coming through our archdiocese with several opportunities for families to walk closer with Our Lord both physically and spiritually. The National Eucharistic Congress ( is gathering 80,000 Catholics to equip them and to send them to where they live, work and play to pray, care and share.
