Tine Gathering October 2014
Leaders of ministries, communities and groups gathered in the Focolare Centre, Curryhills, Co.Kildare, to share about recent initiatives, and to share resources.
What is the Tine Network?
The Tine Catholic leaders network, brings together leaders from parishes, communities, and ministries, to share, encourage, and learn together how to bring to life the New Evangelisation here in Ireland. The focus is very much on equipping leaders, developing practical strategies for evangelisation, and sharing resources. Over the years Tine (The Irish word for Blaze) has organised conferences, training programmes, and a city wide evangelisatic mission in Galway. The Tine Network is very much about helping the Catholic church fulfill its mission of proclaiming the Good news of Jesus Christ, and making disciples.
At different times of the year, we gather leaders to talk about whats working, to share ideas, to encourage each other. Over the years our leadership conferences, have provided opportunities for hearing new vision, and new ways of presenting the Gospel, in todays changing environment. In 2014 we hosted a conference, with Sherry Weddell, author of "forming Intentional disciples", where she challenged participants to look afresh at Adult formation, and a real renewal of our parishes, around forming disciples.
It is exciting, how the Holy Spirit is working in our nation, even in the midst of the challenges facing our Church. It is exciting to see young people taking on responsibility for their faith, and new initiatives developing in the area of evangelisation. The Tine Network is delighted to be a resource, to help fuel a real resurgence of the missionary disciples that Pope Francis, has spoken of in recent time.
