Early Bird Registrations for the exciting national PROCLAIM 2016 Conference on the new evangelisation will be closing Monday 27 June.
Registrations are coming in fast, with groups booked from dioceses across NSW, QLD and Victoria.
“We are delighted to see such an enthusiastic take-up,” said Conference Co-ordinator, Natalie Moutia.
“The strong response is a sign that people are looking for ways to really engage their communities in evangelisation. We believe the range of exceptional international speakers and variety of practical workshops will deliver wonderful opportunities for all involved.”
Most Rev Peter A Comensoli, Bishop of Broken Bay, and this year’s host diocese for PROCLAIM 2016 says:
“I am very excited and hopeful of what PROCLAIM 2016 will bring to the parishes of Australia and beyond.”
More than 500 participants are expected from across Australia to join in the 3-day Conference to discuss, exchange and learn fresh ways in which parishes can become evangelising communities of the 21st century.
Keynote speakers Cardinal Donald Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington, Bishop Nicholas Hudson of the Archdiocese of Westminster; Dr Susan Timoney * (Washington) and Mr Daniel Ang Director, Office for Evangelisation, Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay will be complemented by more than 20 specialist workshops designed to promote and cultivate evangelising parishes in the local context.
Practical Evangelising Strategies; Growing Youth Discipleship in the Parish; Evangelisation through Family-Friendly Ministry; Fostering Vocations; Connecting the Parish and School; and Parishes of Mercy are just a small taste of the rich selection available.
