Transformed Parish 2018 - 'Bringing your Parish from maintenance to mission'

'Bringing your Parish from maintenance to mission'

The goal of the TP18 Conference is to help parishes move from maintenance to mission in response to Pope Francis' vision for Parishes: "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 evangelisation of today's world rather than for her self-preservation" Evangelii Gaudium" (2013). The conference continues a process of promoting parish renewal around the principles laid out by Fr James Mallon is his best selling book Divine Renovation. We are delighted that Bishop Philip Egan, Bishop of Portsmouth and Paul Donders (Holland) will be keynote speakers at our conference.
