Local legacy initiatives and availability of post Conference resources

“This pioneering initiative, inspired by Pope Francis’ Evangelii Gaudium, is for 
all clergy, religious and lay people. Why? Because we all share the one mission – to PROCLAIM the joy of the Gospel. The wide range of practical ideas offered for planning and carrying out fruitful parish evangelisation will help us all to be better missionary disciples.” Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster
