What's a "MegaWorkshop"?
Mega-workshops at the 2019 MAC are facilitated by the "best of the best" presenters on a wide variety of topics cutting across ministry areas. Many of these presenters are leading the way, inspiring leaders to proclaim Jesus Christ in faithful and renewed ways.
M2, What Now? Vocational Discernment and Accompaniment After the 2018 Synod
Speakers: Staff from the Catholic Apostolate Center
Sponsor: Catholic Apostolate Center
M3, Compassion in Action: Addressing the Global Refugee Crisis
Speakers: Giulia McPherson, Matt Wilch
Today, 1 in 113 people has been forcibly displaced from their homes. In the midst of the highest levels of global displacement since World War II, workshop participants will learn about the causes of the current crisis, the scope of refugee needs and how you can take action.
Sponsors: Jesuit Refugee Service/USA, USCCB
M4, Followers, Yet Leaders: Exploring the Baptismal Call in the 21st Century
Speaker: Chris Lowney
Chris Lowney will explore the paradox of Christian discipleship: we are called to be followers, but leaders also. We are called; but we are also sent. Chris will challenge our stereotypes about leadership as he invites each of us to embrace his/her calling. His talk will draw upon his varied experiences, as a one-time Jesuit seminarian, an investment banking managing director, board chair of a Catholic hospital system, and author of important works on leadership spirituality, like Heroic Leadership, Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads and Make Today Matter.
Sponsor: Loyola Press
