| It's still not too late to RSVP for Starting Afresh from Christ at the Campbelltown Catholic Club on Tuesday 6 March 2012. |
RSVP's for this special Lenten event have been extended to Thursday 1 March.
The Australian Catholic Bishops are calling the Catholic people in Australia to a Year of Grace, to span the time from Pentecost 2012 to Pentecost 2013. Following Blessed John Paul II's call at the start of the new Millennium, we are called to commit ourselves to "start afresh from Christ" (NMI, 29).
We are fortunate to have secured eminent scripture scholar Dr vanThanh Nguyen, SVD, SThD, Associate Professor of New Testament Studies and Tenure at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, IL (USA). His keynote address, "The Gospel and Mission of Paul: The Church Today and the New Evangelisation", will help us reflect on what we can learn from the first century Christians for our own time and circumstances, as we look to start afresh from Christ.
Bishop Peter Ingham will introduce proceedings with an opening address on the day.
This is a FREE EVENT and will be held at the Campbelltown Catholic Club on Tuesday 6 March 2012 from 10am-2pm (light lunch included). RSVP is essential by Thursday 1 March 2012 to Jane Edwards at (02) 4253 0899 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a great opportunity to deepen your Lenten renewal, so invite a friend along and let us know you are coming!
