Summer Institute in the New Evangelization 2015 


The Summer Institute in the New Evangelization (SINE) is a collaborative       partnership between the Faculty of Theology at Saint Paul University, Catholic Christian Outreach Canada, and Mission of the Redeemer Ministries. It is intended to help meet the growing need for leadership formation in the New Evangelization.

''The Lord’s missionary mandate includes a call to growth in faith: 'Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you' (Mt 28:20). Hence it is clear that that the first proclamation also calls for ongoing formation and maturation. […] Evangelization should stimulate a desire for this growth, so that each of us can say wholeheartedly: 'It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me' (Gal 2:20).''

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, n. 160
