NEW EVANGELIZATION SUMMIT – 28 APRIL 2018
The New Evangelization Summit is an annual event hosted in Ottawa, Canada and streamed to venues across North America. This year, for the first time, the event will be shown via video link in both Australia and in the UK, at the Centre for Catholic Formation, Tooting Bec, on Saturday 28 April 2018 (9.30am to 9.30pm). Tickets are £30 and include two meals and printed literature. To book visit www.ccftootingbec.org.uk/nes2018
NB This event would be excellent for members of parish evangelization teams, parish pastoral council members and others keen to explore how to share the faith. Canada, like the UK, is increasingly secularised and the wisdom of the speakers will be very fruitful. A preview video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTzSgk2T3cI
A MISSIONARY SISTER
…will be here at all masses this weekend.

Gospel Reflection Second Sunday of Easter, April 7/8, 2018
When the risen Christ encounters his disciples in the locked room he adds a new Beatitude to the ones we’ve heard proclaimed before: “Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” Stewards of the mysteries
of God’s love do not need proof of the risen Christ. They know it because their lives have been transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit who has breathed new life into them and through the Sacrament of the Eucharist which strengthens and sustains them. As stewards of this great gift it is appropriate to reflect on how we in turn add new life into our parish communities.
