The Joy of the Gospel

"The Joy of the Gospel" (Evangelii Gaudium) was written in 2013 by Pope Francis.
It develops the theme of the proclamation of the Gospel in the contemporary world,
drawn from, among other sources, the contribution of the work of the 2012 Synod
on the theme “The new evangelization for the transmission of the faith”.

The parishioners will be looking at each of these in turn: pre-reading the relevant sections  of the pope's document. Alongside this, they will be consulting a guide to the document composed by Bill Huebsch.

In addition, some members of the Vigil Group, Edinburgh have prepared an audio recording of the entire document.
