Why Evangelisation ? Minimize
 

Evangelisation takes place in obedience to the missionary mandate of Jesus:

 

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...”  - Matthew 28:19.

 

“The Church exists in order to evangelise.”  - Pope Paul VI, 1975

 

“The new evangelisation is a summons addressed to all.” - Synod of Bishops, 2012


Pope Francis smiling “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelisation marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church's journey in years to come.” - Pope Francis, "Evangelii Gaudium - The Joy of the Gospel", 2013
