You are invited to a Public Lecture by Dr Jan Jans of Tilburg University, the Netherlands: “Walking the Talk – Integrity in the Ministry of the Baptised: A theological reading of the SACBC Pastoral Plan Evangelising Community, Serving God, Humanity and All Creation”

Time: Wednesday 18th March 7.30pm

Venue: CK Storey Hall, Chapel Road, Rosebank, Cape Town


At the end of January 2020, the Catholic Church in South Africa was officially introduced to the new Pastoral Plan issued by the SACBC. After a very brief general introduction, the lecture will present some topics in this Pastoral Plan which appear worthwhile for reflection. Among these are included sources relied upon and sources recommended, the relationship between ‘evangelisation’ and the other 7 focal areas, formation and empowerment of lay persons, gender in connection to justice and peace, ecumenism and the care for creation and the environment.
