Virtual summit proclaims Evangelisation is still possible

Can Catholics really evangelise at a time like this? How can we do so? Why should we move forward, when it feels like it might be time to retreat? Rebecca Bretherton reports.

On Saturday April 25 we have the opportunity to join others who are asking these questions. World-renowned speakers are joining a virtual online summit to talk about evangelisation in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In East Anglia our Proclaim groups and other parish evangelisation teams have been growing in confidence to give the Good News to others. We have met together to share our experiences and have based much of our work on ideas linked to Sherry Weddell’s book Forming Intentional Disciples. Sherry Weddell is one of the speakers at this summit together with others who will give us the same message: that it is always possible to proclaim the Gospel, even in unusual times.

It is unlikely that we will be able to hold a diocesan-wide evangelisation event in 2020 so this is the chance to gather with others to learn and be inspired. If you are already a member of your parish evangelisation group or if you have not been able to join one previously, this is a great opportunity to hear from world-class speakers on different aspects of Evangelisation, and it’s FREE! 

The Summit is being held on Facebook.

To join the U Evangelize Virtual Summit you need to register for your free place before the event on this link:

The U Evangelize Virtual Summit is being organised in Canada so there is a time difference. In the UK it starts at 5pm and continues until 8pm.
