Can become all you have dreamed it to be
It's your parish and God has placed it in your hands
Do you believe that God has placed you in your parish for a reason?
Do you believe that God will work through you to help your parish grow closer to him and grow in their own God-given charisms?
You do not need to keep doing what has always been done if it is not helping your parish become the parish you dream of, the parish that God dreams for you.
And it can be the parish you want it to be
Your parish does not need to stay where it is - it is time to see your parish come alive?
PECS England works alongside parish priests and their parish to help develop a model of formation and evangelisation based on small communities (cells) meeting, worshipping, praying and growing together. And just like the cells in all living organisms, they continue to multiply bringing life and growth to your parish.
Is it time to change your parish?
The commitment of the members of each cell for the evangelisation of their environment, for a personal conversion to Christ also contributes to the profound
renewal of parish life.
