From 4th to 8th November, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of ACCSE (Association of Coordinators of Catholic Schools of Evangelization) in Rome at the International Conference of the coordinators of the Schools of Evangelization. We have represented the International School of Evangelization of Koinonia John the Baptist, and also given the service of music and worship, see video-presentation. At this time of the meeting we could share with others our experiences of evangelization and be encouraged to keep the fire of zeal burning by the talented preachers like Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, Fr. Gino Henriques and Michelle Moran. We have also been on the Wednesday General Audience with Pope Francis.More information about ACCSE see: evangelization 2033
Training program for members of Koinonia John the Baptist in India (January-March 2014) was exciting, though not without challenges to overcome. Our Koinonia in South and North India is developing and growing for the Lord’s glory and our joy. We did the training for a deeper community integration, then Welcome course, Coordinators, House of Prayer, besides training meetings for families and for consecrated brothers and sisters, we leaded some meetings of: Agapito, Koinonia, we were also invited to give testimony in a Catholic TV channel. There is a lot of work, but the workers are good, then the future lies ahead for a good harvest. See the photos! Now even video!
Have a look at the video of the program held in India from 23rd January to 18th February 2013. We conducted five courses in Salem (South India), in the school of evangelization (ISONE) of Fr. Panneer Selvaraj. In Calcutta we held 4 courses, organized by the regional secretary for the proclamation, Fr. Subhash Baroi. The participants were made up of pastoral animators in the region of West Bengal, some religious, priests and a group of young people from Prerona Bible School. This experience has been a very fruitful collaboration with the two Indians realities, and was also a highly spiritual experience. We experienced the continued presence of the Lord in the courses, and the participants felt a new love for the Word of God, and a renewed zeal for evangelization. You can see the photos!
