We may wonder if such a small community will see the fruit of all the efforts made. It is not pessimism, rather a healthy realism. Those who are used to consider the fruits in terms of mere numbers tend to think like that. As a matter of fact, in the Bible, the real fruit does not consist in numbers, but in a hope based on God’s gift. That’s why the tiny community in Australia is a sign of hope in a future conquest for Jesus of the entire continent. They tirelessly sow and toil for the Gospel, even when the work is marked by disappointment and discouragement. Continue reading The community in Australia: a sign of hope

Lifelong learning programme 2018 – 2019 / Recanati Oasis / Italy
YOU HAVE A GREAT MISSION
Imagine a year of your life or a longer period devoted solely to the Lord Jesus and to an intense preparation for the New Evangelization: a new opportunity to pushing back the boundaries of your trusting experience in the Lord. A unique time and place to rediscover the richness of your call, studying together and breathing the international atmosphere of Koinonia, its friendship and mission into an Oasis’ heart.
A REMARKABLE DESIRE
We believe that in heart’s God there is the unquenchable desire of spreading the Gospel. That its message can reach every nation, every city and every man on earth. This is why we are ready to devote all our energies and all our strength preparing new evangelizers that will be ready to assume responsibility for training new people.
THERE IS MORE
Our priority is to create an environment where our students can experience the love of the risen Christ, to revive a new passion, in order to bring the Gospel’s hope, and to gain practical skills in the fields of prayer, evangelization and methodology of training classes. The school does not teach just a technique or a strategy, but there is much, much more. It is an experience that will push you out of your comfort zone and securities. It will show you new horizons in which the Lord always calls us.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This is a 9 months lifelong learning programme, from October to June. The training programme consists of the Evangelization’s methodology and it is provided in the form of lectures, individual and group practices, personal study and “events on the ground” to put into practice what we learn in class. Everything is done in an atmosphere of friendship and community and it is followed by strong moments of prayer. During the weekends, seminars (of ministries) will help us to rediscover and increase the use of charisms in our mission. Everything takes place at the Oasis of Recanati – MC / contrada Ricciola, 78.
The weekly methodology classes run from Tuesday to Friday, 6 hours per day (lessons, practice and self-study). The timetable is from 8.30 a.m. to 12 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. Weekends’ seminars concern the ministries and have a more intense schedule. You can participate in the whole lifelong learning programme or you can just choose an individual course or seminar, according to your possibilities.
IS IT A SCHOOL FOR ME?
It is for anyone who has the desire to take part in evangelization.
