Parishes, agencies and religious congregations of the Perth Catholic community are being invited to send a representative to the diocesan launch of the journey of the 2020 Plenary Council which is being held during the Vigil Mass of Trinity Sunday on 26 May at 6pm at St Mary’s Cathedral.
In a Pastoral Letter scheduled for release later this week, Archbishop Costelloe explains that over a long period of time, the Bishops have been growing in the conviction that the challenges and possibilities facing the Church in Australia today are of such significance that only a solemn and formal gathering of the Bishops, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, can provide us with the with the wisdom we need to discern what God is asking of us at this time.
“We are all entering together into an exciting and momentous project which is also a journey,” Archbishop Costelloe says.
“We all need to hear each other’s voices as we try to discern what God is asking of us,” he said.
Parishes and agencies of the Archdiocese have been invited to send a representative to this Mass to be commissioned on behalf of their community and to receive a special “Plenary Council Candle” and prayer to take back to their community.
