Announcing the Gospel

18 November 2014 | Broken Bay Institute eConferencing delivers the Good News

G+_AdultEdu Pope Francis has tweeted that “The Church is ever on a journey, seeking new ways to announce the Gospel.” [8 November 2014]

The BBI-ACBC eConferences have played their part by delivering the Good News via the world wide web for free across the country and abroad, every year.

Now, the much anticipated DVD of the 10th eConference on Pope Francis: Modelling the Ministry of St Peter is available and BBI is encouraging all Catholics to give and receive the gift of knowledge this Christmas with a selection of adult faith resources.

The Pope Francis eConference reviewed aspects of our Pontiff’s papacy and examined his views on ecumenism, interfaith dialogue, the role of women, ecclesiology, mission, media and communications.

The Apostolic Nuncio to Australia, His Excellency Archbishop Paul Gallagher, who was recently appointed by Pope Francis as Secretary for Relations with States, joined five outstanding speakers on the panel, including Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB.

The Pope Francis eConference received a great deal of praise and feedback from participants, which reflected how extensively the eConferences and DVDs are being used in the broad Catholic community.

As Advent approaches, it’s time to start preparing spiritually for Christmas. Adult Faith Online short courses such as Spirituality for Today, or Spiritual Formation and Pastoral Care can help with preparation and are great gift ideas at only $55 each.

The courses are open to all and participants can start at any time during the year and learn at their own pace. Group discounts also apply, so organising a parish study group may be an excellent way to prepare for Christmas.
