Some years ago in an earlier iteration of the NCE we became involved in the MBS Festivals. It was, and is a concrete way for our Catholic evangelisers to be in the secular marketplace. In the last few years Sydney Archdiocese has taken on this ministry and it has gone from strength to strength. Recently the Catholic Weekly shared a story about the latest Festival.

As a response to the following words from Pope Francis, the National Centre for Evangelisation is establishing the Agents of Evangelisation Network (AEN) in July 2018.
Over 40 delegates travelled from Australia to Halifax, Canada to take part in the Divine Renovation (DR) 2018 Conference. Delegates were given the opportunity to delve into the fundamental principles of the DR ministry: the primacy of evangelisation, the need to develop strong parish leadership and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Delegates from across Australia joined with 650 participants from a number of countries, including France, Germany, Great Britain and the US. The Conference was live streamed to over 6000 viewers across the globe.
Following the release of Gaudete et Exsultate, Shane Dwyer, Director of the National Centre for Evangelisation has written a series of reflections on this third apostolic exhortation from Pope Francis. These are being released through the Facebook pages of both the NCE and the Catholic Enquiry Centre
