In 2012, the Diocese of Green Bay launched a process into the new evangelization called “Disciples on the Way”. "Disciples on the Way" is an invitation from Bishop Ricken to embark on a missionary journey into the new evangelization and addressed this invitation to all Catholics in the Diocese of Green Bay.
Bishop Ricken remarks that this is a six-year journey of “prayer, preaching, teaching and growing in faith, that will help us not necessarily to do more, but to be more; to be more like Jesus in all aspects of our lives, work and ministries. This is our journey into the New Evangelization”.
The diocesan journey is divided into three emphases over the coming six years:
Formation in Prayer and Holiness- “Teach My People to Pray” (2014 – 2016)
Formation in Discipleship (2016 – 2018)
Formation in Mission (2018 – 2020)
