Engage Conference

  • St Paul's Church Arran Quay Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)

Following on from last years groundbreaking event, Fortify 2017, Engage 2018 seeks to challenge, envision and equip those working with youth and young adults. It is a conference for Bishops, Priests, and Laity, exploring how we evangelise and disciple young people. Its an excellent preparation for the Synod on Youth in the Autumn.

Our Keynote Speaker is David Wells.

David has spoken at more than 300 conferences worldwide. He is a regular contributor to the Religious Education Congress at Anaheim in California, where over 30,000 delegates gather to hear some of the world’s most prolific religious writers. In the UK he has presented at conferences in every diocese in England and Wales, served on several working parties for the Bishop’s Conference of England and Wales, guest lectures at three English Universities, and in 2000 he scripted and produced the video series “You, your Children and their Catholic faith” which sold widely throughout the English speaking Church. He has published two books, The Reluctant Disciple and The Grateful Disciple, both available from Redemptorist Publications. Bishop Malcolm McMahon Chair of the Department for Education and Formation in the Bishop’s Conference described David as a “Remarkable and gifted speaker.”
