PARISH DREAM TEAMS

As a follow up to the Parish Vitality Conference, the Office for Faith Education and the Office for English Pastoral Services have proposed the creation of Parish Dream Teams. This year’s Faith Enrichment Conference will launch the inauguration of Parish Dream Teams. These Dream Teams will dare to dream together of new ways to evangelize and catechize all who knock on our doors, as well as those who have not yet reached out to us. We will have three subsequent prepared and structured meetings to continue the work begun at the conference.

PRODUCTION BY GRUPPO JOBEL

Gruppo Jobel – Art for Earth® believes in the role of artists as privileged messengers to disseminate good practices and create new, sustainable ways of thinking through creativity and involving languages.

Fostering new generations who can be aware, responsible, and sustainably-oriented remains one of the most important challenges of the present time.

Gruppo Jobel – Art for Earth® dedicates great efforts in working with and for young people, involving children, adolescents and young adults in educational projects, created specifically for parishes, career guidance programs and non-formal learning platforms aimed at: developing creative and critical thinking skills; raising awareness about youth rights, good practices and sustainable topics; disseminating a sense of responsibility about the active role that new generations should play as important agents of change in order to achieve social and environmental goals; ensuring their engagement, empowerment and full expression through creative and artistic tools.

MEET MARINELLA MONTANARI,

CO-FOUNDER OF GRUPPO JOBEL 

My background is in performing arts, cultural management and in Oriental studies (China, India, Tibet)

I served as a catechist in my home parish in Rome for seven years.

I had the privilege to co-found Jobel Group in 1998 with Creative Art Director, Lorenzo Cognatti.

I immediately embraced Lorenzo’s vision to bring spiritual and social values into society through performing arts and cultural dialogue.

Since then I have worked in Italy, other parts of Europe and am now in North America, building strategic partnerships to establish educational programs and events that encompass the performing arts.

Through our work, we hope to reach out to communities and engage younger generations in collaborating with one another to build a future in which human/spiritual values are a shared priority.

Since 2015, all Jobel programs and projects are managed under the umbrella of the Art for Earth Project, in response to Pope Francis’ call to action to protect our common home.
