Bishops wind down their evangelisation agency. What comes next?
Bishop Kieran Conry, the chairman of the department of evangelisation and catechesis of the bishops of England and Wales, and Fr Marcus Stock, the new general secretary of the bishops’ conference, have written to supporters of the Catholic Agency to Support Evangelisation (CASE), informing them that the bishops “have decided to relocate the core work being done by the agency to other areas within the bishops’ conference”.
The Catholic Communications Network (CCN) will take a leading role in this re-structure. Developing ways of proclaiming the Gospel with the CCN by using all forms of media presents an exciting opportunity for work of evangelisation.
It’s not immediately clear what this means for the evangelisation efforts of the Church in England and Wales. As new information emerges I’ll report on it here.
