The Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy aims to do everything
possible to provide a safe environment for children and young people
where they are cherished and encouraged to become involved in the life
of our Church.
This is, in fact, the most important thing that Christianity has to offer: the possibility of entering into a relationship of friendship with God himself.
At the heart of the preaching of the kingdom is the message that God has made himself close in Jesus himself. Jesus is the kingdom, the saving presence of God. The Gospel is Jesus himself, and it embraces all that he is, says and does.
The message of the kingdom is fulfilled in the great mystery of Easter, the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, through which we are saved and drawn into a definitive relationship of friendship and sonship with God.
Since Easter, the method of evangelisation has essentially been to tell people what we now read in the Gospels about Jesus Christ and his saving work. To evangelise means to acquaint people with Jesus as we come to know him through the Gospels.
