Diocese of Parramatta response to the Plenary Council

The Plenary Council is the first time in 80 years that the entire Australian Catholic Church will come together to pray, discuss and listen to the Holy Spirit about our future. You may or may not have already participated in contributing direct feedback to the process in 2019. It’s time to become involved again. In October 2021 nine Members of the Diocese of Parramatta will join nearly 280 other Catholics from around Australia. They will discuss the items on the Plenary Council Agenda.

The Plenary Council is about our Church. Each of us can ask the Holy Spirit to guide the process. We can each reflect on how we would answer the questions on the Agenda, and provide our feedback to the Members of the Plenary Council from our Diocese. You can email them at comms@parracatholic.org.
