New Awakenings Mission Team

New awakenings top 2


Clifton Diocese has its very own mission team called New Awakenings. The team seeks to engage men and women, both clergy and lay, in proclaiming the gospel through parish missions, bringing new life and vitality in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are particularly interested in helping to join parishes in communion for mission together. Our Scriptural underpinning is “Go out to the whole world, proclaim the Good News”.
