Listen to what the Spirit is saying
Our parish coordinators: Mary McComish, Daniel Lynch, Tina Perez
The listening-and-dialogue sessions concluded this week with a celebratory Mass and Supper.
From the participants' feedback, each of the groups has borne good fruit.
There has been evidence of very respectful listening
and of an honest sharing of experience and ideas, of hopes, dreams and sadness.
Many have indicated their intention of sharing submissions
with the Plenary 2020 website and a healthy number have already done so.
Please continue to pray for our Australian Church as we continue to respond to God's Holy Spirit.
From the National Executive Team of Plenary 2020

Pope Francis' vision for the Church in Australia is " a synodal Church".
A synodal Church is a Church which listens,
which realizes that listening is more than simply hearing.
It is a mutual listening in which everyone has something to learn ....
the faithful people, the bishops, the Bishop of Rome:
all listening to each other, and all listening to the Holy Spirit,
in order to know what the Spirit says to the Churches".
