Our Mission Directorate serves the Department for Evangelisation and Discipleship and acts as a point of reference for evangelisation in dioceses, movements and Catholic organisations in England and Wales.
Our important work in the field of evangelisation aims to help the local Church make the joy of the Gospel a reality in England and Wales. The subject sits in the Bishops’ Conference Department of Evangelisation and Discipleship.
Through talking, sharing and praying, we hope that we can encourage all of us in our diocesan families to develop new strategies to accompany each other as the People of God to grow in our faith and meet the Lord in the sacramental life of the Church.
Evangelii Gaudium Sunday is celebrated each year on the Third Sunday in September. We proclaim the unique message of the Gospel that brings joy to all people who receive it with an open heart.
On 4 March 10,000 young people will fill OVO Arena Wembley, for an inspiring day of prayer, adoration, catechesis, reflection, celebration and praise.
