CATHOLIC CHURCH LAITY'S JOURNAL


NEW CHURCH JOURNAL

The IGREJA NOVA ( NEW CHURCH ) journal, had its frist days in a parish in Olinda and Recife, Brazil, from an experiment made by laities who had lived a communitary model of church, inspired on the Concilio Vaticano II which had Dom Hélder Câmara as the leader among many others.

Our journal’s proposition is to be the memory of this ecclesial model. Free, independent, but always in union with those who defend the preferntial option for the poor.

Until now we live by the word. We don’t have any economic link or institutional. We distribute gratuitously, and plublish 3.000 copies monthly. It is one of people looking for it, is one of our goals to reach the 10.000 copies monthly, as there is a growing number of people looking for it, thank God. We managed to put introduce our journal in various communities in Brazil, and in some places in Italy, France and Germany.

There exists this dream of ours to extend it a lot more, and together with this process, some day transmit it trhough a computer net, multiplyung in many ways its power of evangelization, with the sharing of experiences, articles and news. All this, even the dreams, need material resources for its concretizing.

We plea, as Paul, for the communion of who believe in JESUS Utopia, so the IGREJA NOVA might grow and establish itself even as a sign of resistance and faith.
