Pastoral Letter from The Most Rev Timothy Costelloe SDB, Archbishop of Perth
The Fifth Plenary Council of the Catholic Church in Australia
Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
The second and final assembly of the Fifth Plenary Council of the Catholic Church in Australia has concluded. After a long and intense journey of over four years the members of the Plenary Council, lay women and men, religious sisters, brothers and priests, diocesan clergy and all of Australia’s active bishops (as well as four retired bishops), met together in Sydney to formulate the response of the Catholic Church in Australia to a very important and fundamental question: what is God asking of us in Australia at this time?
