The Francis Effect: Living the Joy of the Gospel
- 16 December 2013
As an extension of Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium and accompanying book 'The Francis Effect,' Catholic Mission and Catholic Religious Australia (CRA) have been hosting one day colloquium events in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle/Maitland, Perth and Wollongong.
These colloquiums have brought together Australian Catholic leaders and those that are passionate about mission for a day of formation and professional development.
We invite you to come in groups or as individuals to attend and engage with what it means to be living the joy and of the gospel and leading mission and evangelisation in Australia today.
We are also anticipating the release of Pope Francis’ Encyclical on the environment and will be offering colloquiums as a response to his words. Please register your interest and we will provide you with more information as this develops.
The Book – Don't Miss Out!
In 'The Francis Effect: Living the Joy of the Gospel,' twelve Australian leaders from various Catholic ministries offer valuable insight in response to Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium The Joy of the Gospel.
The book provides an excellent opportunity to explore highly relevant topics for the Australian Church and society today.
Father Stephen Bevans SVD writes that "every one of these reflections is a joy born of deep struggle, deep amazement and deep faith commitment."
What better time in the history of the world and the Church to promote joy?
Pope Francis' much anticipated Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium provides us with a guide and invitation to rediscover the original source of evangelisation in the contemporary world.
In response to Pope Francis invitation, and Catholic Mission and Catholic Religious Australia's Mission Network are excited to present 'The Francis Effect: Living the Joy of the Gospel.'
