.- This year’s annual diocesan Parish Leadership Day, Feb. 17, for the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, will focus on evangelization.

Fr. Robert Barron, a professor of systematic theology who was recently named director of evangelization for the Archdiocese of Chicago, will give the keynote address. He is also the host of Word on Fire on Relevant Radio (8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Sundays). He is the author of seven books and his articles on theology and spirituality have appeared in a variety of journals, reported the Catholic Herald.

The day’s workshops include: "Catholics, Come Home: We've Missed You"; "The Role of Ecclesial Movements"; "Welcoming Hispanics in Our Parishes"; "Evangelization in Every Day Life”; "Parish Web sites as a Tool for Evangelization," and "Accommodating and Including Catholics with Disabilities.”

Other workshops will explore the diocesan strategic planning process; health care decisions at the end of life; how to start a parish respite team; legal aspects of personnel management; parish cemeteries; teens with problems; Theology of the Body; Christian unity; fostering vocations; and Catholic social teaching.

The full-day event will be held at the Bishop O'Connor Catholic Pastoral Center. The registration fee is $30. To register, go to www.madisoncatholic.org/PLD.
