It's not often that an Apostolic Exhortation is in demand in a parish. Here in Gorton we have sold nearly 50 copies and we are having to order more to meet further demand. The Pope in all of his communication is very accessible and many parishioners have commented that they have found the content of Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel) really helpful and inspiring. From Wednesday 12th March parishioners will be meeting to go through Pope Francis' work chapter by chapter. The hope is that lots of parishioners will be imbued with the Pope's vision for the Church: a Church that is outward looking and missionary in character; a Church for the marginalised; a Church made up of compassionate and faith filled people. If you want to come along to the meetings just read a chapter of the Exhortation in advance. It's not an academic session, it's about sharing thoughts, questions and inspirations.
