The School of the Annunciation, which prepares students for the new evangelisation in England and Wales, will mark its official foundation on September 8 with Mass celebrated by Cardinal George Pell, reports the Catholic News Agency.
Cardinal Pell’s visit follows an “unexpectedly large number of applications” for the school’s two-year program, the school said on Monday.
The school’s director of studies, Caroline Farey said that the school now has over 30 students for its part-time distance-learning diploma in the new evangelisation. Enrolment in the two-year program has far exceeded the administration’s expectations that its initial target of 20 students would be “unrealistic.”
Ms Farey said the course content has “quality and relevance.” It was developed by Dr Petroc Willey, a consultor for the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelisation.
