Proclaim ‘15: National Initiative To Support Parish Evangelisation

‘Proclaim ’15: BUILDING MISSIONARY PARISHES’ is the name of a new national Bishops’ initiative being launched in 2015 to support the development of parish evangelisation.

It is inspired by Pope Francis’ writings and has five parts which include:

  • the provision of free parish small group materials;
  • the organisation of a National Catholic Evangelisation Conference in Birmingham on 11 July 2015 for 850 evangelisation representatives from across England and Wales;
  • an invitation to parishes to host a parish Prayer Vigil on the night of 11 July 2015 with free prayer materials provided;
  • the invitation to dioceses, deaneries and parishes to have their own Proclaim ’15 event in autumn 2015;
  • the publication of new evangelisation resources as a fruit of the National Conference to equip local evangelisers.

Please do get involved in what is a significant new step in service of the proclamation of the Gospel in our area. More information will be available in our newsletter over the coming months.
