Diocesan Assembly

A key milestone of our preparation and consultation for the SMPC was be the Diocesan Assembly on 15 February 2023.  The Diocesan Assembly was be a rare opportunity to bring together all of our active clergy, lay representatives from all of our parishes, professed religious, school principals and staff of Catholic entities together. 

Parish priests have been asked to work with leadership in their parish to invite parishioners to attend the Diocesan Assembly according to the allocation for their parish.  Unfortunately, we don't have a venue large neough to accommodate everyone who might be interested in participating, so we have allocated a number of seats to each parish. 

Both the Year of Consultation and Preparation for the SMPC and the Diocesan Assembly are part of the movement of synodality that Pope Francis is leading us on. It's our way of being Church.
