PLENARY COUNCIL LAUNCH
Plenary Council 2020 – Listen to what the Spirit is saying.
Pope Francis has approved the Australian Bishops’ decision to hold a Plenary Council in Australia in 2020 and 2021. It is a significant moment for the Church in Australia to make decisions about the future. To prepare the agenda for the Plenary Council, all of God’s people are invited to reflect on the question: “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?”
Find out more about the Plenary Council 2020 at the new website, now online: http://plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au/.
