Thousands of people across Australia and around the world are expected to be online for the Broken Bay Institute’s ‘The Holy Spirit’ eConference on Thursday 19 May.

Institute For Mission, the Parramatta Diocesan Centre for Catholic Adult Faith Formation, is one of the ‘eSites’ hosting the Conference webcast, sharing in the rare opportunity of hearing two keynote educators, Fr Denis Edwards and Sr Janette Gray rsm, as they explore the theme of The Holy Spirit: Giver of Life.

Fr Denis Edward is senior lecturer in theology at the Flinders University School of Theology and Adelaide College of Divinity. He has written extensively on theology and science subjects.

Sr Janette Gray is a Sister of Mercy who lectures in systemic theology at the Jesuit College of Theology in the United Faculty of Theology, Melbourne. Her teaching areas are the theology of the human person, Church, the interface between Church and contemporary society, Church and social responsibility, feminist theology, and Christian-Muslim relations.

The keynote educators will be joined by Fr Chris Ryan MGL (who accompanied the World Youth Day Cross and Icon around Australia prior to WYD 2008 Sydney) and Jan Heath. Mrs Heath was recently involved in the hugely popular Pray 2010, and it is anticipated that both speakers will bring an experiential aspect to the eConference.

The fifth eConference to be presented by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference and the Broken Bay Institute, it is hoped The Holy Spirit eConference will set a new record for the number of people logging on to participate.

Previous eConferences have shared enormous success bringing together more than 30,000 people on each occasion across 28 countries. Many will again watch online from schools, parishes, hospitals, prisons, groups, universities, religious orders and Church agencies.

Support questions are available from the eConference website closer to the event, and all sessions will be archived online to allow for repeat visits.

The Holy Spirit eConference will be streaming from 10.30am to 3.15pm on 19 May.

If you would like to join in the eConference at the Institute For Mission (IFM) eSite at 1-5 Marion Street Blacktown, bookings are essential.
