Framework for Motions

The Framework for Motions for the second assembly of the Fifth Plenary Council of Australia has been published. It emerges from more than four years of listening, dialogue, discernment, reflection and prayer within the Catholic Church in Australia.

Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB, the Plenary Council's president, says the document “will form the backbone of our reflection, discussion and decision when we gather” for the second of two assemblies, to be held in early July.

You have been invited to join our diocesan Plenary Council Members in four Plenary Council Coffee Conversations (via zoom) on a Thursday night (7pm to 8.30am), over the coming four weeks.

To assist you in preparing for these conversations please find attached two documents:
