Evangelisation Forum 28 / 03 / 2017

Evangelisation Forum

"How beautiful are the feet of the messenger of good news."

At Hinsley Hall on Saturday 18th March a group of people involved in evangelisation from different parts of the diocese met for the morning to share their experiences and to encourage one another in the mission of evangelisation.

The morning began with a reflection from Romans 10:14-15 led by Jessica Wilkinson the Diocesan Youth Co-ordinator. "How then are they to call on him if they have not come to believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard of him? And how will they hear of him unless there is a preacher for them? And how will there be preachers if they are not sent? As scripture says: "How beautiful are the feet of the messenger of good news."

There was then a very powerful presentation given by Bernard Martin from St Martin de Porres parish in Wakefield about how Pope Francis encourages all of us to be witnesses, to be messengers, to be missionary disciples.

Bishop Marcus was with the group for the first hour and spoke warmly of how he often told parishioners when on visitation that the priest's job in addition to the celebration of the Sacraments was to enable them to fulfil their vocation as baptised people of God - to send them on their way as Christians in the world. Bishop Marcus then linked this to the opening scripture passage and to the ‘beautiful feet of the messengers of good news'.
There were some generous and inspiring accounts of evangelisation projects and ideas from Matthew at Notre Dame High School, Eva & Eva from the Talitha Community in Halifax, John from St Mary's Bradford, Elizabeth from Sacred Heart, Hemsworth and Mary & Bernard from St Martin de Porres, Wakefield
