Divine Renovation Australasia Virtual Conference 2021

Date: Saturday 20 November, 2021
Time: 9:00am

Join us for a spirit-filled time of prayer, live keynotes, inspiring panel sessions. The virtual conference will aim to support priests, parish teams and individuals in their journey of parish renewal, while encouraging and equipping you in your Catholic faith.

  • If you’re new to Divine Renovation, this conference will be an experience of practical engagement of Fr James Mallon’s book (Divine Renovation) and a deeper understanding of what it involves and what it looks like in practice in Australia and New Zealand.
  • For those who want to begin but don’t know where to start, our panel sessions will highlight what other parishes have done in the first year and what you can expect. This will help you formulate a clear strategy on where to start.
  • For those already familiar with using Divine Renovation principles, the conference sessions will encourage and equip you in dealing with the deeper challenges and sustaining lasting change.
