Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness is as relevant today as it was two thousand years ago. But how can we create and sustain parish communities that respond to the Gospel call in an age of increased disengagement? What tools might we use to invite and encourage people to participate in this epic adventure called faith? Whether you’re involved in your local parish/school leadership team or simply an ‘adventurer’ yourself, this day is for you! Come and be inspired at this parish renewal day where we explore the joys and challenges of parish life and how to be effective faith leaders in the 21st century.
Internationally-renowned speaker and author Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP will deliver two keynote presentations: “Imagination - The Adventure of Faith” and “How to be Faith Witnesses in the 21st Century”.
Participants can then choose from a selection of workshops that offer insights, ideas and best practices to develop and enrich a variety of parish ministries — existing and new! Workshops include: "How to develop a culture of prayer in the Parish" (Presenter: Tricia Murray), "What's the role of Scripture in our liturgy-why do we need it?" (Presenter: Fr Frank Moloney SDB AM), "Yep! Youth Engagement Program Melbourne" (Presenter: Genevieve Bryant), "From Consumer Catholics to Evangelising Disciples: Lessons from the New Movements" (Presenter: Sr Bernadette Toohey MGL) and more!
