On 25 April 2023, a conference on Evangelisation and Vocation will take place in Renehan Hall, Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth. The conference is free of charge and all are welcome to take part in this discussion ‘Diocesan Priesthood in a Synodal Church’. The keynote address will be delivered by Archbishop Rino Fisichella, Pro-Prefect of the Vatican Dicastery for Evangelisation.

Speaking on the launch of this conference, Bishop Aphonsus Cullinan of Waterford and Lismore said, “There is a crisis now in priestly vocations, and this crisis is linked to the deeper crises of faith. It is our desire to assemble from around the Country all of those who are passionate about Diocesan Priesthood for a one day conference on Evangelisation and Vocation. In the conference we are positioning the issue of vocation within the wider context of Evangelisation.

“We are delighted that Archbishop Rino Fisichella has accepted the invitation to address this topic as the keynote speaker.  In addition to Archbishop Fisichella, there will be a panel of expert speakers.”
