Parramatta Diocesan Plenary 2020 - Information & Training Sessions Up And Coming....

Plenary 2020 is the name given to a process initiated by the Australian Bishops who are inviting people to engage in listening, dialogue and discernment about the future of the Catholic Church in Australia ahead of a Plenary Council in 2020. Significantly, a process such as this has not happened in Australia since 1937.  Our voices are needed and we are invited to engage with family, friends and colleagues in this time of renewal.

Information and Training Sessions have already been held. There is a growing interest in Plenary 2020, and so we are now repeating these earlier sessions.

All parishioners are invited as the sessions assist with both a parish level response as well as helping individuals share the Plenary invitation with friends and family.  Our next upcoming Information and Training Sessions are as follows -

Thursday, 20 September     -           7.00 pm to 9.30 pm             -              Parramatta Cathedral Hall (1 Marist Place, Parramatta)

Saturday, 29 September      -           10.00 am to 12.30 pm         -              St Thomas Aquinas Springwood School Hall (168 Hawkesbury Rd, Springwood)

Saturday, 29 September      -          2.00 pm to 4.30 pm             -              Emu Plains School Hall (17 Troy Street, Emu Plains)

**Light refreshments will be provided at all sessions**

The following people will greatly benefit from attending a session:

·         All parishioners
·         Clergy
·         Parish staff, council members, ministry co-ordinators
·         Parish volunteers
·         Ethnic community representatives
·         Chaplains
·         Community group representatives

We strongly encourage you to participate in one of the above sessions and to invite others to attend.  This is a unique and exciting time.  Our voices are important.  Let us speak boldly and with passion and listen with an open and humble heart. 

Please reply to this email with your RSVP to with date and time and parish or agency as soon as possible.
