2021 New Evangelisation Conference
In this world and age, what does it mean to be Catholic? How can we live in holiness when the busyness of work, commitment of family, and stress of life weigh down on us?
We are called to be saints in the world. We are called to bring the flame of Christ to all whom we meet. We are called to be the Catholyst. To spark, to provoke, to accelerate a reaction in the depth of people’s hearts to know our God, the God of Love.
Join us at this virtual conference to learn how we can live the life that we are called to. Learn from our speakers what it means to evangelise in this world and join our breakout sessions to be inspired as our presenters share how they integrate evangelisation into their work, family, and life.
