Plenary Post, Edition 32 – March 25, 2021

PlenaryPost is the Plenary Council e-newsletter. It is periodically and keeps you up-to-date with all the news and information related to the Plenary Council happenings around the country.

Plenary Post, Edition 32 – March 25, 2021

There has been a sense through this Plenary Council journey that the Catholic world is following what is happening in Australia closely. With just two other plenary councils having taken place in the past 60 years around the world, and none with the level of dialogue and discernment of the Australia process, there’s significant interest in what will unfold.

There are two important ways in which that’s been observed recently. Firstly, there was a fair amount of international reporting — from Auckland to Rome and many places in between — on the release of Continuing the Journey, the Council’s working document. Secondly, as other countries dip their toe into the water of national assemblies of one form or another, including Germany, Italy and now Ireland (more below), the stories inevitably mention Australia’s Plenary Council.

There are several interesting updates below on things happening locally. Keep an eye out for future editions of PlenaryPost on the last Thursday of each month through 2021. Send suggestions on local content that can be included to [email protected].
