Upcoming Plenary Listening & Dialogue Sessions
From now until Ash Wednesday 2019, everyone is invited to take part in the Listening and Dialogue phase, reflecting on the plenary question: “What do you think God is asking of us at this time in Australia?” We are grateful to the parishes, groups and individuals around the Archdiocese who have already begun the Plenary process. Let’s keep the dialogue happening!
Some upcoming sessions:
Greensborough, Greensborough North, Diamond Creek
Saturday 13 October, 11am - 1pm
Gathering Space, St Mary's Greensborough
This session is being hosted by St Mary's Greensborough and is open to all those interested in learning about the Plenary and how to facilitate local listening and dialogue sessions. Tiffany Davis (Assistant Director, Archbishop's Office for Evangelisation) will offer some context for the Plenary and invite those present to experience the process, in order to be able to then facilitate it in their own parishes and groups. If you are from the area and would like to join us on the day, please contact St Mary’s parish office (firstname.lastname@example.org
