The evangelization team of St. Antoninus Church in Newark, and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Orange including Liliana Soto-Cabrera, Coordinator of the Office for Evangelization of the Archdiocese of Newark spent the weekend of January 30 at an International Seminar held at St Edwards Church, Pembroke Pines, Florida, learning the leadership skills necessary to institute an exciting and amazing phenomenon known as the Parish Evangelization Cell (PEC) system in their respective parishes.
St. Edward’s Church in Pembroke Pines, Florida, is a thriving multi-cultural Roman Catholic parish with over a hundred nationalities that is aflame with the fire of the Holy Spirit and the spirit of evangelization. Since its inception in 1994, the church has steadily grown and now comprises of over three thousand five hundred families. At the heart of its phenomenal growth is the Parish Evangelizing Cell System instituted at the very beginning by its impassioned and evangelistic pastor, Monsignor Michael Eivers, who unabashedly heeds Jesus’ clarion call to “go out into the whole world and proclaim the Good News to all creation.”
