1. Roman Catholic High School
Roman Catholic High School strives to bring the Gospel values of Jesus Christ to its students while forming a Catholic community that embodies the Christian spirit of service to all.
Their plan intends to address the gap between knowing “about” Jesus and entering into a relationship “with” Jesus. They plan to establish a relational model of ministry and evangelization where teenagers are invited into a personal relationship with Jesus.
2. Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary
The Seminary forms missionary disciples who are shepherds after the heart of Jesus Christ — Catholic priests and permanent deacons, religious and lay, men and women — for various forms of ministry and service.
Their proposal looks to engage individuals throughout the five-county area of Greater Philadelphia through the integration of email marketing, podcast presentations, short-reel videos, and radio programming. The project consists of weekly messaging about the lives of saints whose experience is particularly relevant to the life of faith in the contemporary world.
3. Live Vertical
Their mission is to take religion from a subject learned to a faith that is vibrantly lived. They help to foster personal encounters with Jesus Christ through guided adoration sessions, retreats, and campus minister accompaniment.
Their plan proposes to expand the reach and depth of campus ministry beyond the campus minister through the creation of evangelization teams in high schools composed of students and adults. These teams will work with the campus minister to be catalysts for encounters with Jesus within their school community. The focus is a mission for one.
The event is free and open to the public. Join for an inspiring evening of faith, innovation, and community. Register now and be part of the Angel Award Presentation Event on October 19th, 2023!
