Missio Metropolis: New Evangelisation for Liverpool

The Archdiocese of Liverpool has been chosen to take part in programme this Lent that will be evaluated to inform the forthcoming Synod of Bishops dedicated to the theme of the "new evangelisation". Details can be found at the Bishops Conference website, and at Liverpool Archdiocese's own website.

What interests me in reading this report is the extent of the engagement of the diocesan Bishop in celebrating the Liturgy and in preaching/teaching during the Lenten season. The eve of Palm Sunday is also going to see a celebration of the Stations of the Cross in Liverpool Cathedral, and event combining a sense of culture and of meditation.

It will be interesting to see how this exercise by a Bishop of his office of teaching will turn out.
