Katie Dawson, MA
Director of Parish Faith Formation for Diocese of Orange

Refreshments to be served at 5:30 pm and talk will commence at 6:00 pm.

Evangelization can take many forms, from running a Bible study group to simply talking to someone about your faith in the hope of getting them to embrace it. One key concept, they say, is that evangelization isn’t simply an isolated act but rather a lifelong process. Pope Francis is challenging us to determine how best to bring the message home and help people access the message of Jesus. He wants us to understand it and apply it, and then live it."

Katie is a popular speaker inside the Diocese of Orange and outside the diocese speaking on Pope St. John Paul II's New Evangelization and on the various diocesan and parish faith formation programs here in Orange County.

As Director she is responsible to provide resourcing, support and formation opportunities for the faith formation leaders in the 62 parishes and centers of the Diocese. Evangelization and cultivating a culture of discipleship and discernment are her particular focuses.

Katie received her BA in History/Religious Studies from Loyola Marymount University and Masters in Theology from University of Notre Dame. She has served as a parish catechist, youth minister, and retreat leader.  Previous to working in the Diocese of Orange, Katie was parish Director of Evangelization and Formation at St. John Eudes Church in Chatsworth. Katie has been married for 36 years and has 5 grown children.
