Parishes Renewed with a Mission Mentality.
The Catholic School of Evangelisation shares the vision of the Catholic Church as an evangelising Church. We seek to make this a reality by providing training to develop a mission mentality within Catholic parishes.
The Catholic School of Evangelisation will contribute to the development of a mission mentality within Parishes, by offering a formation programme which:
- FORMS DISCIPLES (Touches the heart)
Catholics with a passion and heart to reach out to those who don’t know Jesus. Catholics who experience the love of the Father for his prodigal children.
- TRAINS EVANGELISERS (Provides the skills)
Helping Catholics to develop the skills and confidence to evangelise. Focusing completely on Jesus (his incarnation, death, resurrection and glorification).
- FORMS A PARISH EVANGELISATION COMMUNITY (Establishes the structure)
To establish the structure necessary to allow the Holy Spirit to move with power to enable Catholics to evangelise as part of a parish family.
Formation of Parish Evangelisation Community
To help a parish to develop as an evangelising parish the School would establish a Parish Evangelisation Community (PEC). This PEC, through the courses and evangelisation activities undertaken would, through the power of the Holy Spirit, change the mentality of a parish so that evangelisation would be an integral part of everything a parish does and every parishioner would live evangelisation as a natural part of being a disciple.
