SPREAD THE GOSPEL: DEVELOPING A MISSIONARY PARISH
44 begin the New Archdiocesan Programme!
The Diocesan Evangelisation Commission is pleased to announce that 44 parishioners and clergy from parishes across the Archdiocese began the new Evangelisation Programme on Wednesday, April 21st. We had more applications than we could take on the first run as 44 was our optimum number and applications are still coming in. A second run of the Programme has now been arranged to accommodate the continuing interest. The dates will be Tuesday, September 28th, October 5th, 12th and 19th, and November 2nd, 9th and 16th 2021. The Programme is open to all parishioners and clergy across the Archdiocese.
It is a seven-week programme, running for one and half hours via Zoom on one evening a week. The Programme will remind participants of the Great Commission and the basic Gospel message. It will cover a rudimentary history of the early church and will consider important messages from recent papal papers, how to give witness testimonies, evangelise non-church going Catholics with practical approaches and tools for building a parish team to evangelise.
The Genesis Mission will be an important follow-on activity offered to participants, providing the necessary skills for successful encounters. For more information and to register for the second run of the Programme, please email Madeleine Walters at firstname.lastname@example.org
