The New Evangelization Summit
This conference will bring together speakers who are leaders in the New Evangelization to provide inspiration, encouragement, training, practical wisdom and resources on how Catholics can effectively evangelize. All Catholics – pastors, missionaries, lay ministers, and the lay faithful – will benefit immensely from this powerful opportunity to be further equipped in the fundamental mission of the Church.
The annual NES will be held in Ottawa and streamed to 3 host-sites. The broadcasting of the event will provide a way for Catholics from around North America to participate in the Summit. Thus approximately 5000 like minded Catholics from across the continent will be united in one goal – to be formed as evangelists and be part of a network of Catholic evangelists.
Speakers include Fr. Jon Bielawski, Diocese of Plymouth, co-developer of the Geneis Mission:
The Genesis Mission is an effective program of formation and enables ongoing continuing personal growth. It works in a very practical way that is uniquely adaptable to every baptised person; dismissing the myth that evangelising is only for those with “the gift” and enabling each and every faithful Catholic to proactively share in the great commission. Many Parish Evangelisation Teams equipped with the Genesis Mission have since sparked across the diocese of Plymouth in the UK. “The Genesis Mission Parish renewal is inextricably linked with the formation of missionary disciples who have learned to evangelise by evangelising.”
