LETTER OF NOTIFICATION AND INVITATION TO THE COURSE ON PREACHING ORGANISED BY THE GENERAL COMMISSION FOR EVANGELISATION AND MISSION

Preaching-Evangelization

John Keating, O.Carm.

Prot. no. 100/2018.

18th May 2018.

 To leaders of the Carmelite Family

Dear Carmelite brothers and sisters

 

In light of the section on preaching and the proclamation of the Word (110-175) in Evangelii gaudium, the 2014 exhortation of Pope Francis, the General Commission for Evangelisation and Mission would like to offer to the Carmelite Family a course on preaching.

While the course is open to the whole Carmelite Family, the one condition is that all the participants should have a clear reference group (province, community, Third Order Chapter….) for whom the participants afterwards can organise a course similar to the one that the Commission is offering. This might be done with the support of the local province.

The course will deal with the meaning, the mission and the art of preaching. The four-day course will take place in Fatima (Portugal) at the Casa Sao Nuno, from the 15th (arrivals 14th) to the 18th of January 2019 (departures morning of the 19th).

All applications (link download below) should be sent to Fr. John Keating, O.Carm. on or before the 30th of September 2018. The cost for each participant will be €450 inclusive of all accommodation, meals and lectures.

The commission looks forward to your interest and participation,

In Carmel,

 

John Keating, O.Carm.

Councillor General.

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
