"Jesus Revives His Church" at the Good Shepherd
"Jesus Revives His Church" day event was soon upon us at the Good Shepherd Church, Nottingham, which took place on Saturday the 28 June. The day programme was advertised locally drawing some 50+ parishioners together from different parishes to listen attentively to our three guest speakers: a very thoughtful Fr Anthony Franey (St Anne's Church, Radcliffe) who shared wonderful insights on "New Evangelisation", a strong and confident delivery from Derek Williams, a Catholic Evangelist, on the topic "The Prophetic Lay Ministry" finishing in the afternoon with a presentation by Donal Foley who shared his deep love for "Our Lady Of Fatima and her role in the New Evangelisation." The event started with morning Mass, meet and greet with coffee, with an opening address and blessing of the event by parish priest, Canon Philip Ziomek. There was an opportunity for discussion, questions and answers taken by all speakers. Many parishioners expressed their delight at being part of such a joyful encounter, well satisfied with a delicious lunch that was on offer (a special mention to thank a good friend, Marcos Dazzi for preparing such a wonderful spread) time to browse the book stall as well as an opportunity to purchase the ever growing popular "Lighthouse" CD talks that were on offer. These do not disappoint, truly inspirational, unpacking the truths of the Catholic faith. A special thank you to all who made this a truly wonderful event, building the faith of each other, producing lasting fruit as we all participate and respond to the challenge of furthering God's Kingdom here on earth. God bless.
