It is our aim to respond to the call for a New Evangelisation by helping to foster the Lay Faithful in discovering new depths of personal relationship with Christ through prayer, worship and the nurturing of a greater openness and response to the Holy Spirit.

We also recognise and support the need for the Lay Faithful to grow in confidence, conviction and knowledge of our faith and understanding of Scripture as well as its application to our lives, formed by mature teaching and Catholic education.


By so engaging in a more active approach to our faith where we can support, encourage and up-build one another we aim to provide opportunities to enable lives to be spiritually renewed so as to be transformed in Christ and therefore better prepare us to respond to the call of our Baptism to give witness and edify the Church.


The St John Paul II Prayer Movement meets at the Dunkeld Pastoral Centre, 24-28 Lawside Road, Dundee on Thursdays – between 7-9pm and also in St Columba’s, Kirkton, on Mondays; St Fillan’s, Crieff on Wednesdays and St James’, Kinross on Fridays

Catholic Spiritual Renewal

“Spiritual renewing of heart and mind to bring about personal and community transformation.”

NEW EVANGELISATION
Up to now, we have explored in greater depth, the ‘core values’ and ‘methods’ to be adopted in the John Paul Prayer Movement to help support us in moving forward in our mission statement. Before exploring further the ‘means’ and ‘various elements’, as shown on the structural layout, that we intend to deploy in order to apply the methods to support us in meeting the core values and therefore enable us to move forward in our mission statement, it is important, at this stage, to contextualise the overall framework that the John Paul Prayer Movement is engaged in, which is one of evangelisation.


‘Yes, dear brothers and sisters, our Christian communities must become genuine “schools” of prayer, where the meeting with Christ is expressed not just in imploring help but also in thanksgiving, praise, adoration, contemplation, listening and ardent devotion, until the heart truly “falls in love”.’ (n. 33)

“Where the meeting with Christ is expressed not just in imploring help but also in thanksgiving, praise, adoration, contemplation, listening and ardent devotion, until the heart truly ‘falls in love’. Intense prayer, yes…”
