PROCLAIM 2016 draws upon the inspiration of this Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy and the ongoing missionary challenge of Pope Francis in Evangelii Gaudium. Over three days participants will be encouraged to assume the joyful call to mercy through renewed pastoral activity in their local parish as the frontline for the mission of evangelisation.
The structure of the conference allows for participants to network extensively with leaders in parish communities, members of groups and movements, personnel from diocesan agencies and to share practical ideas for making healthy and evangelising parishes.
PROCLAIM 2016 keynote speakers have a dedication to renewing parish life for mission. Their personal experience and vision of the Church will provide invaluable support, ideas and pastoral initiatives for parishes around Australia and beyond. Complementing these keynotes, specialists from a wide variety of fields from all over Australia will conduct practical workshops specifically designed to promote and cultivate evangelising parishes in the local context.
