An Interesting New Catholic Evangelization Initiative
Just in case some of my readers are interested in doing more than complaining about the Church.
International Congress for the New Evangelisation and city mission in Vienna
From May 23rd to June 1st 2003 the first International Congress for the New Evangelisation takes place in Vienna, Austria. This is a completely new initiative of the Catholic Church. During these ten days church in Vienna will be on the streets and out in public to invite people to think about faith and church. It is an initiative of the four Cardinals of Vienna, Paris, Lisbon and Brussels. This international Congress moves from one capital to another in Europe.
For this event Kerygma Teams is partnering up with the Franciscan University of Steubenville. Before and during the mission a team of about 35 people will be spreading the message of Jesus Christ in Vienna.
Freedom – Night of Mercy is the English speaking event at the City Mission. It will take place in front of the United Nations buildings in Vienna.
The interesting thing to me is that last line. The idea of YWAM doing evangelization for the Catholic Church is evidence of remarkable progress in the relationship between Catholics and other Christians.
