PLENARY COUNCIL 2020 Listen to What the Spirit is Saying
Plenary Council 2020: Listen To What The Spirit Is Saying…
In October 2021, the Catholic Church in Australia will gather for the first Plenary Council to be held since the second Vatican Council. In 2018, the entire People of God in Australia began preparing for this historic moment by listening to God, by listening to one another’s stories of faith.
WORKING DOCUMENT NEXT STEP ON PLENARY COUNCIL JOURNEY
Work recently began on the development of the working document - or instrumentum laboris - with the document
drawing heavily on the first two preparatory phases of the Council journey: Listening and
Dialogue and Listening and Discernment.
The voices of more than 220,000 people across the country, as well as discernment and
writing papers on each of the six National Themes for Discernment, are being considered
alongside Church teaching, Scripture, papal documents and a range of other sources – within
and beyond the Church – in preparing the instrumentum laboris.
