The Agency for Evangelisation gives priority to the support and promotion of small communities. These are faith-sharing groups which meet to share the Bible, Church teaching, share their own experience, and to discuss the needs of the wider community. 

We work to support existing communities through the production of seasonal faith-sharing resources and the provision of pastoral support and training throughout the year. The Agency also seeks to assist parishes in setting up new small communities.

Autumn 2018

The theme for the World Meeting of Families in Ireland in August 2018 was, 'The Gospel of the Family means Joy for the World'. This new faith-sharing resource for small communities, 'Holy Families: The Joy of Love, an exploration of Amoris Laetitia', is a proclamation of this same truth. Exploring themes from the Holy Father’s 2016 Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, this resource seeks to explore the beauty and blessing, the joys and challenges of marriage and family life over six sessions. The sessions have been written by theologian Pia Matthews, Bishop John Sherrington and Bishop John Wilson.
