Proclaim ’17 Building Missionary Parishes

We are being reminded more and more about the Mission of our Church. We are called to help spread the Gospel, not just priests and nuns, and not just in far off places, but here in our own place, in our own time. Before returning to heaven, Jesus sent out his Apostles to the whole world, and that includes Llanishen and Lisvane, Cyncoed and Thornhill! It may seem such a huge task, and so it is, but we have the Holy Spirit to guide and help us – and we have one another.

To help us understand better and equip us for this wonderful work, the archdiocese has organized another Proclaim event, following one in 2015. Saturday 21 October St David’s College 9.30 – 4.30pm. This day will give us practical steps forward in pursuing the Church’s mission – to make disciples of all nations.

After a keynote address from Archbishop Bernard Longley of Birmingham, we will be split into the five tracks that are designed to meet the needs of all parishes at different stages:

* Evangelising as an Individual
* Teams for Mission – What can we do first?
* The Unchurched
* Non-Churchgoing Catholics
* Growing Parishioners into Disciples

Each track consists of a seminar in the morning and workshop in the afternoon which will inspire you, but also give you practical help and resources as you take up the Church’s mission. With wonderful speakers from across the UK it really is an event not to miss.
