Hearing your voices! - Plenary Council

In 2020 the Australian Bishops and other representatives of Catholic church organisations will be holding a Plenary Council to talk about the future of Catholic Christian faith in Australia.

In preparation for this gathering, people all round Australia are being asked to give their thoughts and ideas.

We particularly want to hear from youth and young adults.

This process is called Listening and Dialogue. A useful flyer to assist you is downloadable here.

You are asked to respond to some or all of three questions:

1. What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?

2. What questions do you have about the future of the Church for the Plenary Council to consider in 2020?

3. Do you have a story of your experience of faith, or the Church you would like to share?

You can upload your thoughts, either individually or by talking with your group/ friends and putting your ideas together. 

Upload your responses here

All responses will be taken into account in forming the agenda for the Plenary Council.
