Adult Faith Formation

Evangelisation Brisbane promotes a wide range of Adult Faith Formation initiatives and resources generated both locally and globally because ‘the first proclamation of the Gospel calls for ongoing formation and maturation’ and that ‘all of us need to grow in Christ’ (The Joy of the Gospel n160).

Professor Richard Gaillardetz

The Australian Church was very fortunate to have a theologian of the calibre of Professor Richard Gaillardetz from Boston College visit our shores in August 2018. We were able to audio record one of his Brisbane presentations: Wrestling with the Tradition: A Model for Critical Belonging in a Church Facing Challenges – (58min) –Download Audio

Fr James Mallon Recordings:

On Saturday 19th of November over 340 people filled the Siena Centre at San Sisto College to hear Fr James Mallon speak about practical ways that Catholics can take up Pope Francis’ call to be ‘missionary disciples’. Many of the participants had already read Fr James’ book, Divine Renovation – from a Maintenance to a Missional Church, and were eager to hear him develop the ideas in the book further. There are links to each session from the day, including a panel in the afternoon.
