cbsstthomas0413-5Conventual Franciscan Friar Peter Tremblay of St. Paul Parish in Kensington expounds on the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) on April 27 during the Catholic Biblical School’s workshop on "The Word Made Fresh."

Scriptural scholar Celia Sirois, who teaches at St. John Seminary in Brighton, Mass., pictured at the podium, was the guest lecturer.

The purpose of the free workshop was to help participants to think carefully about the process of evangelization so that they could better communicate the good news of the Gospel to a new generation.

The Catholic Biblical School is a program of the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office of Religious Education and Evangelization.

Reflecting on the effective evangelization of St. Paul in his day, Ms. Sirois said she often wonders, "What would Paul have put into a 144-character Tweet to get across the salvation story of Christ?" (Photo by Bob Mullen/The Catholic Photographer)
