We are a Catholic Community who profess, celebrate
and witness that Jesus lives, and to whom the Father sends
His Spirit. We express that belief by living out and spreading
the message of the Gospel.

Plenary Council 2020

In May 2018, Australia’s Catholic Bishop’s launched the most significant review of the Church in Australia in recent times, the last one being held in 1937. The purpose of the Plenary Council is to plan for and direct the future of the Australian Catholic Church in the most open and inclusive way possible. It is to be a meeting of the whole Church in Australia, including everyone, bishops, clergy, religious and lay faithful.
The unfolding process is over a three-year period.
2018: A Year of Listening
The Plenary Council’s first stage of preparation is Listening and Dialogue. This is currently happening and will continue until Ash Wednesday 2019.
All people are invited to engage in Listening and Dialogue Encounters – which are an open and inclusive experience of listening, dialogue and discernment about the future of the Catholic Church in Australia. Everyone is invited to respond to the question:
What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?
We encourage parishioners to submit your response to the question by visiting the plenary council website at http://plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au/resources/have-your-say/
2019: A Year of Discerning
The discerning and re-listening period when reports are summarized and the Agenda for the Plenary Council is formed.
2020: A Year of Proposing With two sessions of the Plenary Council – October 2020 Adelaide, and May 2021 probably Sydney, with the Bishops expected to vote on proposed legislation at the second session.
