Divine Renovation – A Day With Fr James Mallon

September 14, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

The Bishop’s Pastoral Office invites you to a one day seminar with Fr James Mallon.

Fr James is the Episcopal Vicar for Parish Renewal and Leadership Support for the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada and author of the book Divine Renovation.
This book is a practical guide for parishes seeking to cultivate vibrant and dynamic faith communities centred on missionary discipleship. It tells the story of the wonderful success Fr James and his team have had in transforming the parish of St Benedict’s.

Fr James is in Christchurch to speak to the National Clergy Gathering and has offered to run a day seminar for parish leaders and all those interested in parish renewal.

Cost for the day is $50, which includes lunch.
