Plenary Post, Edition 36 – July 29, 2021

With much of greater Sydney in lockdown and two other states having just emerged from lockdown, there is a sense of comfort in knowing that all the planning for a multi-modal Plenary Council assembly in October means we are ready for all eventualities. That is not to say there aren’t a lot of plans to be finalised, but we are well prepared to support the Council’s members and the Catholic community through the days of the assembly.

We’ve been hearing lots of stories from parishes, schools and other Church communities about how people are engaging with the Council’s agenda, which was published last month. We encourage you all to find ways to reflect upon and pray with the agenda and the 16 questions it poses.

The Council agenda emerged from three years and several layers of prayer, listening, dialogue and discernment. It will shape the program of the Council’s assemblies – the first of which opens in 66 days on October 3.

More stories are also emerging about how Council members are engaging with their local communities, how they are responding to the agenda and even how the pandemic is affecting how they will participate. There are some stories on those themes below.

Keep an eye out for editions of PlenaryPost on the last Thursday of each month through 2021. Send suggestions on local content that can be included to [email protected]
