Thank you to Father Jan, Jennie Martell, Peter Dean, Nancy Mills, and Gordon Jewers, who represented us at the meeting on the "New Evangelization" on September 17. Gordon wrote the following report for all to read.
On Saturday morning, September 17th clergy and parish representatives met in the six regions of the dioceses of Halifax and Yarmouth to discuss Archbishop Mancini's vision of the 'New Evangelization'. Our region met at St Peter's school and St. Anthony's parish was represented by Father Jan, Jennie Martell, Peter Dean, Nancy Mills and Gordon Jewers.
After the opening prayer we watched a DVD presentation from Archbishop Mancini. Following this we broke into groups to share our ideas and discuss the work to be done at the parish and regional levels. More meetings will be held over the coming months. You can find more information on this at the Archdiocese web page (www.catholichalifax.org). This will be updated on an ongoing basis.
In the words of Archbishop Mancini, “We are the church and our world awaits the gospel which we will bring.”
