From the Faith in Our Future Blog of Pastoral Planning Office Director Daniel Ang

It is invigorating to see that our Diocesan Pastoral Plan has been widely recognised for the vision, sense of communion and missionary discipleship that it has generated among our agencies, parishes and people even in this first year of its life. We are seeking to break new ground in availing ourselves of new ways in which to live the original gift, the life and message of Christ, in all the cultures and contexts that form our Diocese.

From the Address of Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP - Awarding Papal Honours to Mr Serge Rosato & Tree Planting Ceremony on the Anniversary of the Blue Mountains Bushfires, St Thomas Aquinas Primary, Springwood, Friday 17 October 2014

Today’s tree planting is a testament to courage and community, to the faith, hope and love lived in real relationships and real actions, to that resilience and dynamism that means Church, school and community are forever renewing themselves, just as our natural world is.
