The Diocese of Derry is delighted to welcome keynote speaker Mr David Wells to St Columb's College, Derry, to give a talk on 'Building Parish Life'. A gathering for parishioners, parish leaders and clergy focussing on our call to offer God's grace to a hurting and broken world.
International speaker, teacher, catechist and author, David Wells has worked with parishes and dioceses internationally, encouraging and inspiring people to share the Joy of the Gospel, through the lens of building parish life. David invites us to witness to the Gospel and to encourage others on their journey of faith, in the context of taking up opportunities, ministries and responsibilities at local parish level and, in doing so, living out the Joy of God's Word.
You are warmly invited to join other parishioners and parish leaders from parishes across the diocese to this event, to be inspired by David, with his wonderful ability to share his knowledge, experience and many stories from a lifetime of dedicated work in the Catholic Church.
