Pope Francis has approved the Australian Bishops’ decision to hold a Plenary Council in Australia in 2020 and 2021.This gathering of all the local churches or dioceses of the nation will invite us to reflect on the question: “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia?”

Find out more about the Plenary Council 2020 at the new website now online: www.plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au and in the upcoming April Broken Bay News with a message from Bishop Peter and a special four page guide highlighting our local plans here in the Diocese of Broken Bay, to play our part in this national conversation.

Through its listening and dialogue sessions, the Plenary Council will give all people the opportunity to say what is on their mind and in their heart. It is a chance to speak boldly but also listen with an open and humble heart. The official launch of the Plenary Council will be at Pentecost this year, May 20. That gives us time to prepare, to “Listen to what the Spirit is saying” and to consider how we can take part in this important process.
