Lakeshore Academy for the New Evangelization
Make Disciples, Be Witnesses

Home

Jesus is calling us to make disciples and to be his witnesses on the Lakeshore, in West Michigan, and to the ends of the earth. Lakeshore Academy for the New Evangelization (LANE) is a school of adult discipleship that proclaims the Gospel to all people and empowers our regional Catholic community to live out Christ’s mission.

Our Bishop Has Endorsed LANE!

“I recommend and endorse this academy for all Catholics (and non-Catholics) in our diocese. I believe this is an important outreach to our diocesan evangelization effort… I pray with you that it will bring about a renewed sense of the role our laity have in knowing the faith and spreading it.”

Most Reverend David J. Walkowiak, Bishop of Grand Rapids


Loving God and Neighbor

LANE classes unpack the treasures of Sacred Scripture and Tradition, making them comprehensible, accessible, and shareable in the twenty-first century. Classes focus on five major themes of the Catholic faith: Bible, Doctrine, Prayer and Liturgy, Social Teaching, and Pilgrimage. These are derived from the two greatest commandments: to love the Lord our God and to love our neighbors as ourselves.


LANE hosts dynamic speakers from our regional Catholic community and beyond. These leaders will address the opportunities and challenges facing the Church in engaging speaking events and seminars. These events are open to all, not just current LANE students.
