For pastors, priests, and key parish leaders
June 12th, 2019, 9AM to 4PM
I dream of a ‘missionary option’, that is, a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church’s customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channeled for the evangelization of today’s world rather than for her self-preservation.Pope Francis (Evangelii Gaudium)
Imagine if our parishes became fully alive all across our city. Imagine creating parishes where our loved ones who are far from Jesus can encounter Him – first in the friendship of our people, then in a true encounter in the power of the Holy Spirit, and the Sacraments. Imagine, parishes across London that change people, that awaken people to the real love of God! We could change our city!
We are by no means experts, but we are very excited to invite you – pastors, priests, and interested lay leaders – to spend a day with us as we pray, learn, and grow together. We have learned a lot in our 2 years with the Divine Renovation Network and we are eager to share our failures and successes with you in the hopes to inspire and equip you to taking a next step toward the renewal of your parishes, and ultimately the renewal of our city!
