There are few occasions that see many people from different parishes come together. This is a great time to celebrate and strengthen unity. Take time to connect with others from different parishes, get to know each other and share experiences. Maybe even make plans to stay in touch after the conference.
No need to keep to the people you know, make new friends as you discuss what you’re learning. Sharing what you’re learning reinforces it to your memory and makes it more meaningful.
Share what you’re learning and your experience with those unable to attend. Use the #DRSA18 to share posts, highlights and key moments and take-always.
And, at the conference, you can already start to talk with your fellow parishioners about what is standing out for you. Perhaps start the conversation, which will continue after the conference on what these things may mean for your parish.
If you haven’t already go the Divine Renovation book don’t worry, you’ll be able to buy one at conference.
The conference is only the start. The real difference and impact comes when we act on what we’ve learnt. It will be our obedience to what God says to us that will make the difference.
