plenary council 2020bPreparation for the Plenary Council 2020 is continuing and the next phase of consultation is about to begin. Based on the submissions from groups and individuals across Australia, including the Catholic Community of North Harbour, organisers have published 6 themes that will be the focus of the second phase of consultation through a process of Communal discernment. Themes are as follows:

How is God calling us to be a Christ-centred Church that is:

Missionary and Evangelizing;

Inclusive, Participatory and Synodal;

Prayerful and Eucharistic;

Humble, Healing and Merciful;

A joyful, Hope-filled and Servant Community;

Open to Conversion, Renewal and Reform.

Information about these themes will be provided in the Parish bulletin and the Parish Pastoral Council will consider how the Parish can participate in the process at the next PPC Meeting on 8 October.
