AWE Process (Affirming, Welcoming and Engaging People)

With so much being written and spoken about in the Catholic Church today about leaders being more receptive, more welcoming, and more engaging, it is indeed interesting that ISPD has been teaching and consulting on what we call our AWE process for over a decade. This 8-10 month process seeks to engage many people in the parish who do not attend Mass on a regular basis, do not see themselves and the church in a collaborative and spiritual partnership, and do not believe the parish has anything to offer by way of education and spiritual growth. Already presented in numerous dioceses throughout the country, the ISPD AWE process actually “walks” parish leaders through the steps on how to seek to engage the 30% uninvolved and the 40% actively disengaged + how to affirm the involvement of the 30% who are the leaders in their parishes.
