  • Title: Why?
    Descriptive info: Now after John was imprisoned, Jesus went into Galilee and proclaimed the gospel of God.. He said, The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is near.. Convert and believe the good news! (Mark 1:14 16).. What we have seen and heard we announce to you too, so that you may have fellowship with us (and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ).. Thus we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.. (1 John 1:3 4).. Background.. First of all, there is energy in the province.. This is found in different ministries and in varied commitments, both individual and community-based.. It is important that this still remaining energy be not dispersed or be allowed to come to nothing.. Secondly, there is an issue of communities living relatively isolated from the province as a whole.. Is there a sense of common identity among us? In the past, the great missionary endeavour in Nigeria provided decades of focus, both in the mission territory itself and at home.. As things stand, we lack such a common project.. Finally, many say the crying need of today in Ireland is adult faith formation.. Many questions arise in people s minds and hearts about the credibility of the faith as such and the credibility of the church as a servant of the Gospel.. We do not serve people adequately if we carry on as if great and significant questions were not being asked.. They will also require innovative and courageous responses.. Carrying on as it not would indeed see us out but would also be grossly irresponsible to present and future generations.. Implementation.. 10..  ...   of faith and practice.. 12.. At the same time, the task force should plan a fuller programme of well-thought out adult faith formation for implementation in our different contexts (pastoral outreach, schools, parishes etc.. This programme should be designed with a built-in flexibility for adaptation to local conditions.. A combination of smaller and large gatherings may prove fruitful.. A three to five year plan would be adequate.. 13.. Details: Use appropriate facilitation both to focus the energy and to review what is being done.. The untapped potential of the new social media should be used to the fullest extent.. Create some kind of fixed and frequent link with the provincial council, so that all are aware of what is happening.. Provide a progress report for the next provincial chapter.. Proposal.. Design and implement a province-wide programme of adult faith formation, based chiefly on careful listening to the concerns of believers and grounded in the rediscovery of the teaching and person of Jesus.. This would be part of our response to the times in which we live.. It would create an environment in which people from different ministries would collaborate, both Augustinians and laity.. The province as a whole would benefit from a shared pastoral project.. Presuppositions.. 7.. The current critical situation must be acknowledged: questions regarding the church (perhaps especially), gospel, Jesus, salvation, prayer, morality and even faith as such.. 8.. Share the Good News , the new national catechetical directory, could be broadly adopted as the inspiration and ideological frame.. 9.. The New Evangelisation is already established as a frame of reference in recent church teaching.. A synthesis of this development could also be adopted as guide and inspiration..
