PLENARY COUNCIL 2020 – INVITATION TO “LISTENING & DIALOGUE ENCOUNTER” : The journey towards the Plenary Council has started and we invite all parishioners to be part of the listening and dialogue encounter to take place in the next coming weeks.  We are encouraged to engage in prayer as we will meet in small groups to gather with friends, family or colleagues to listen to one another and in listening to share ideas and concerns. Our voices will help shape the agenda of the council. This week, we encourage to take to prayer the following question and listen to what the Spirit is saying:

WHAT DO YOU THINK GOD IS ASKING OF US IN AUSTRALIA AT THIS TIME?”
