New phase of Evangelisation

This week the Vatican released an instruction The pastoral conversion of the Parish community in the service of the evangelising mission of the Church. It's primarily about parish renewal which makes for interesting reading - and aligns with St Gregory’s 2020-2022 Parish Pastoral Plan!

 

The Instruction begins with:

Pastoral conversion is one of the central themes in the “new phase of evangelisation” that the Church is called to foster today, whereby Christian communities be ever more centres conducive to an encounter with Christ.

The Holy Father, in this regard, recommends that: “If something should rightly disturb us and trouble our consciences, it is the fact that so many of our brothers and sisters are living without the strength, light and consolation born of friendship with Jesus Christ, without a community of faith to support them, without meaning and a goal in life. More than by fear of going astray, my hope is that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us a false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving and Jesus does not tire of saying to us: “Give them something to eat” (Mk 6:37)”.
