The Oceania Evangelisation Program (OEP) was first conducted in 2022 at Pentecost. In 2023 over one thousand leaders participated in Hubs across the Oceania region. Both have been powerful experiences of the Holy Spirit inspiring and revitalising leaders and enabling a collaborative vision for evangelisation across the Oceania region.
The Oceania Evangelisation Program will again be conducted in 2024 on Pentecost Sunday on May 19. The theme for 2024 is ‘Pentecost – A current of grace for the Church in Oceania. Again, there will be a focus on being open to experiencing the renewing grace that flows from baptism in the Spirit.
The invitation to participate is open to all those involved in evangelisation. There is a particular invitation to Catholic youth ministers, Catholic school educators, youth leaders in ecclesial movements and parishes.
In addition to the Pentecost experience, there is an opportunity to participate in cross-cultural missions later in the year. (Optional)
