PROCLAIM 2018 is about inspiring, equipping and encouraging parishes and Catholic communities to engage in Evangelisation and Renewal. PROCLAIM 2018 will be organised and hosted by the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane, in partnership with the National Centre for Evangelisation on behalf of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. This national conference will engage parishes in an ongoing conversation focusing on Leadership, Cultural Change, Young People, Belonging, Hospitality and Evangelisation. This conversation will draw together over 500 participants for keynote presentations, facilitated conversation sessions, peer learning, expert discussion panels and future visionary planning.
Throughout the Conference, delegates will be offered the opportunity to develop their own Proclaim Action Plan which they are invited to implement on returning to their local parishes and communities around Australia.
2018 will be a significant year, not only as it is the Pope’s ‘Year for Youth’, but also because it is a key time in the lead up to the Plenary Council 2020.
PROCLAIM 2018 will be held in Brisbane at the Edmund Rice Performing Arts Centre (St Laurence’s College) from July 12 to July 14, 2018. PROCLAIM 2018 is open to all.
