Plenary Council 2020 journey – Phase 2 -Let’s Listen & Discern Workshops

St Kevin’s Phase 2 workshops were successfully held in November 2019
Look out for more to be held February 2020
 
Phase 2 is all about ACTION: Let us come together for our Church & make a difference.
Last year, as a Parish, we successfully came together and work shopped Phase 1 – “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?” Australian wide submissions resulted in 6 themes; established as focus areas to encourage the Bishops to discuss and make decisions for the Catholic Church of Australia.
Now we have Phase 2 – “How is God calling us to be a Christ-centred Church in Australia that is…”  Writing groups have been established for each of the 6 themes and it’s now our turn to assist them on the ‘How’ – the practical suggestions moving forward on how as a Church- the steps we take to achieving our ‘what’.

quillFr Gerry along with Jan and Peter Sheehan meet with Bishop Vincent Long

Last week, Fr Gerry together with Jan and Peter Sheehan visited Bishop Vincent Long in Parramatta for a one-one meeting. The purpose of this visit was to encourage Bishop Vincent on his endeavour of Church reform and to encourage his ongoing leadership and courage. During the meeting, Vincent had with him the our ‘Joint Parish Statement’ – He immediately congratulated and thanked us! “This is beautifully written”, he said.

On the weekend of September 15th 2019, we celebrated and thanked our very generous and many volunteers of St Kevin’s Parish. Our volunteers administer a variety of ministries for our immediate Parish and those in our community. We thank them all from the bottom of our hearts for their commitment to St Kevin’s and their missionary work towards others. They are wonderful people walking in the footsteps of Christ.
