At the Heart of the New Evangelisation


There has been a lot of talk about the ‘new evangelisation’, but when we cut to the heart of it, what is it meant to achieve? Why do people seem less receptive to the Word of God today?

  2. Hi Ray,
    Thanks for your comment. I too attended St Bede’s College from 67-74. I like to say that “I’m still recovering from the experience” but I suppose I should be more grateful for teachers who poured out their lives into the education of the next generation… a Christian vocation indeed! Anyway, I’m here to tell the tale and I’m amazed at how the Lord uses all our experiences of life for the good when we submit them to his wisdom.
