ONE in Spirit and Purpose

82 of our parishioners came together on Saturday, 18 April, for the New Evangelization Workshop conducted by Fr. Terence Pereira and his team from the Office of New Evangelization (ONE). Evangelizing is not something new. All along it has been a function of all Christians starting with the Apostles. However, the circumstances in the 21st century are vastly different from the time of the Apostles. Hence, the need to discuss the new social and political landscape we find ourselves in today, and the new opportunities, new means and new expressions for evangelization. After a general discussion on evangelization, participants broke into groups to focus on how our Parish of the Risen Christ can be a beacon of hope to the residents of Toa Payoh, and how to reach out to them in ministry.
