The Carmelite General Commission for Evangelization and Mission is offering a workshop on preaching based on the section entitled: Proclamation of the Word from the 2014 Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium of Pope Francis. All provincials, commissaries and general delegates have been informed of this in May 2018.
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 ought to be done with the support of the local province and approved by the provincial.
The course will deal with the meaning, the mission and the art of preaching. Among the principle speakers are Timothy Radcliff, O.P, Professor Donna Orsuto, and Carmelites, Alexander Vella, Huub Welzen, Miceal O’Neill and others.
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). The letter of convocation and application forms can be found on the Order’s website at this link.
For those who have not yet made application, this ought to be sent before the 30th of September 2018.
