Manila, Philippines – The Philippine Conference on New Evangelization (PCNE) “could bring about an explosion of faith” with its three-day program of simultaneous talks by experts in various Church topics and concerns, said Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal G. Tagle, who will lead the event to be attended by about 5,000 participants from October 16 to 18 at the University of Santo Tomas (UST) in Espana, Manila.
The Church leader said the conference aims to keep the mission of new evangelization alive amid changes brought by modernization.
It also seeks to provide the participants with an experience of God, an experience of the Church, as well as a sense of mission.
“We are hoping that through this three-day conference, we would gain a renewed experience of Jesus,” Tagle said.
Tagle has invited delegates from Taiwan, Vietnam, Brunei, and Myanmar to attend the event, viewed as the climax of the country’s observance of the Year of Faith that ends on November 24.
Activities to be held include inspirational talks, parallel sessions, a concert, and workshops.
