INVITATION - Diocesan Assembly on Saturday 6 September 10am - 2pm

Everyone is invited to attend our upcoming Diocesan Assembly - Saturday 6 September at Mount Carmel Catholic High School, 10am - 2pm.

The Assembly, hosted by the Diocesan Pastoral Council, will assist you in planning for 2015, especially in the areas of pastoral care for families, young people and the faith formation of people in your communities.

Our theme is “Working in Communion as Bearers of Christ’s Love” with the purpose of the assembly being:

- To strengthen the bonds of cooperation between the Diocesan Pastoral Council, Parish Councils, Parishes, Schools and Catholic Agencies;

- To share learnings, actions and achievements within the current Diocesan Pastoral Plan 2011-2015.

- To work together in developing directions and strategies across the Diocese in the areas of families, youth and adult faith formation particularly as we prepare the Diocesan Plan for 2015-2017.

Time: 10.00am – 2.00pm (includes lunch)
Where: School Hall, Mount Carmel Catholic High School
210 Spitfire Drive, Varroville (ample parking is available onsite)

The day will include input from diocesan staff, along with ample time for participant discussion on developments in each focus area.
