Why Should I Go?
Well… watch this:
Pope Francis recently said, that “the Church is missionary by her very nature; she is not self-enclosed but sent out to every nation and people.” The New Evangelization Summit is the perfect opportunity to give you the inspiration and formation you need to be God’s instrument in bringing God’s salvation to the world. The Church exists to evangelize.
