The Plenary Council will be an important time of listening and discernment for our Church. Around Australia people are getting together to prayerfully discern where the Holy Spirit is leading.
The work that the Holy Spirit is doing through you with Alpha and/or with Divine Renovation is something that the wider Church needs to hear! Your efforts to intentionally make and grow missionary disciples are bearing wonderful fruit in Parishes all over Australia.
Even if you have been involved in wider Parish listenings, you are still able to download the materials and work with your Team or Small Group to give some additional feedback.
The Plenary Council website is here
There is a short video about the Plenary here
You can download the Plenary Listening Resources here
You can upload your team/small group response here
Get involved in the Plenary process and tell the wider Church about how your work with Alpha and/or Divine Renovation is reaching lives and hearts in your Parish!

Small Group Discussions. In these settings of 6 to 8 people in a relaxed environment, the Listening and Dialogue Process is very effective. It is important to keep to the Five Step Process in order to ensure a prayerful, contemplative, respectful opportunity for all participants to speak boldly and listen humbly.
It is just as important to listen as well as to speak about your faith experience. It is important to set the example of reflective listening. You and other group members are not expected to agree or disagree. Just listen humbly and reverence the experience of others.
The small group discussions allow for an open, honest environment free of distractions. Some people feel much more comfortable in small group settings - organize yours between now and 6 March 2019. This would be a wonderful way to respond to the invitation of Bishop Brian Mascord to “seize this opportunity”.
Pick up your Plenary 2020 Group Guide from the church porch. Don't forget to put your group name on the list as well so we know.
