“Evangelisation is the mission of the Church, not just of a few, but my, your, our mission” (Pope Francis)
Our Parish life is rich in a variety of opportunities for adult formation. For the Baptised we have a programme – Relit – to support us in becoming a Missionary Parish.
In October 2017 the Parish launched Relit, a DVD programme that helps revitalise parishes by training groups to share the Good News with each other and those who do not yet belong. With practical tools and a fresh perspective, we can make all of our Parish activities and our programmes of sacramental preparation reach and inspire people more effectively. We will integrate evangelisation into everything we do at Worth as a Parish.
To further our programme of evangelisation Hannah Vaughan-Spruce spoke at our Annual Parish AGM held on Sunday, 22nd April 2018. She described the work of Divine Renovation, an organisation which assists parishes who want to become more missionary. Find out more on the Parish Meetings page.
On Thursday, 2nd May 2018, Michael Dopp, founder of the Relit Programme spoke to parishioners involved in the programme in Compass House. Margaret Corke reports on his visit:
“The Relit programme, undertaken by 15 parishioners over an 18-week period captivated and inspired all those who took part. More than this, the process put into hearts and minds a new vision for evangelisation in the Catholic Church.” Continue Reading
