The Five Stages
The Hope in the Future journey is broken down into five stages. The following roadmap shows when the various stages, events, and resources will be launched but your parish may want to move at a different pace.
Inspired by the teaching of Pope Francis in Evangelii Gaudium, Bishop John desires to encourage the development of missionary parishes.
A missionary parish is a community called to be open to the Holy Spirit so that the Good News of Jesus Christ can be known to all through welcome, engagement, and outreach.
A missionary parish will have a focus on Evangelisation: deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ and inviting others to get to know Him and the Gospel message.
Corpus Christi and Hope in the Future
We regularly meet with our parish Hope in the Future team and representatives to discuss ideas to develop the link between schools and parish.
