“Priest & Laity – Together In Mission” was the theme of guest speaker Rev. Fr. Matthew Ramsay, pastor of Saint Anne Parish, Saskatoon, on March 31, 2022, part of a Knights of Columbus “Share the Faith” lecture series.
He talked about the importance of the three steps of evangelization, which are to know Jesus, to commit with Jesus, and to become a disciple-making disciple.
Fr. Ramsay also spoke on how to become outward-looking Catholic men to other people and in the Church, as well as the importance of building relationships with laity – to other people and to the community – and respond to the needs of discipleship.
