20th Anniversary ISOE Conference

To Whom It May Concern,


I have worked with the Irish School of Evangelisation in the area of Unbound: Freedom in Christ Ministry in the Archdiocese of Armagh. I have found all involved to be dedicated to the call of New Evangelisation in our Church. All members of this school have given generously of their time, resources, knowledge and personal charisms to further the reign of God in the lives of the laity and the clergy not only in our diocese but in many countries throughout the world. We are grateful to them for their ministry and their dedication and we hope to continue to nurture the seeds they have sown.


I pray God's blessing on their work and I have no hesitation in recommending their work to others and I wish them God's blessing on their future ministry. should you want to speak to me about this great school please contact me at the above address or numbers.


Letter of Appreciation

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Irish School of Evangelization for their tremendous efforts to bring the message of Unbound to Northern Ireland. ISOE began preparations to organize and provide prayer teams for the Unbound Conference in Armagh over ten months ago, and their diligence and perseverance in prayer and training was evident in the success of the conference this fall. They provided over a dozen highly trained prayer teams for personal ministry. The teams were compassionate, knowledgeable, and effective. Many who came for prayer reported receiving great freedom, insight, and love. The planning and coordination of the conference was excellent, and the people in attendance expressed enthusiasm and appreciation for everyone involved in the event.

I wish to personally thank everyone at the Irish School of Evangelization for their hard work and dedication to setting the captives free. My personal gratitude especially for all of those who prayed for others as well as interceded. Also thanks to everyone who prayed specifically for this conference - it was a time of grace and special blessing and I know that is in part because of the power of prayer. Special thanks to Joseph O'Callaghan and Fr. Gerry Campbell for their leadership. The worship team was also a tremendous blessing.

I am grateful for your partnership in the good news of Jesus Christ, and I remember you all in my prayers.

Evangelisation and
Openness to the Spirit

To evangelize, then, we must be open to the action of the
Spirit of God, without fear of what He asks us or
where He leads us.  Let us entrust ourselves to Him!
He enables us to live and bear witness to our faith,
and enlighten the hearts of those we meet


"Look to the future with commitment
to a New Evangelisation, one that is
new in its fervour, new in its methods,
and new in its expression"

( Pope John Paul II
Haiti 1983)

The 'Irish School of Evangelisation' (ISOE)
started in 1994. Its mission is to promote
and facilitate initiatives of the 'New Evangelisation' in Ireland and abroad.

South Sudan, Diocese of Torit Diocesan Clergy Retreat


Excerpt  from Letter of Appreciation from the Vicar General - Diocese of Torit

 "On behalf of His Lordship, Akio Johnson Mutek, Bishop of the Diocese of Torit, in my own capacity as Vicar General, and in the name of all the priests who participated in the spiritual exercises you directed together with your colleague, Teresa Kehoe, from the 6th to the 10th of December 2010 at the St. Joseph Center in Ikotos, I write to express our profound and heartfelt thanks.

We very much appreciated your emphasis on the Eucharist as the source and summit of our priestly and Christian lives, the essential role of the Holy Spirit in our spiritual lives and in the mission of the Church, the centrality and importance of the Scriptures and the necessity for personal prayer.  I know I speak for all those who participated in saying that it was a graced moment of spiritual renewal for us, and an experience that opened new horizons and perspectives for our priestly ministry."
