Description

Becoming Missionary Disciples

The Evangelium Conference is aimed at engaging Catholics in evangelisation. It will be held for the first time in Tasmania from August 30-31 at St Bernard’s Church in Claremont.

Themed ‘Becoming Missionary Disciples’, the conference will feature speakers, workshops, times of prayer and outreach. The theme is taken from Pope Francis’ call for Christians to be ‘missionary disciples’.

“Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus: we no longer say that we are ‘disciples’ and ‘missionaries’, but rather that we are always ‘missionary disciples’,” the Pope said, in his apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

Aimed at parishioners, teachers and youth, as well as priests and religious, the conference will have a particular focus on enabling parishes to develop a missionary spirit.

The conference’s keynote speaker is evangelist, and co-founder and managing director of the Catholic ministry menALIVE, Robert Falzon.

Purchase of a conference ticket includes access to keynote addresses and workshops, lunch & dinner, morning & afternoon tea, tea and coffee. Attendees can choose to attend one presentation from each workshop:
