Positive and hope-filled conversation at Emu Plains and Glenbrook

13/06/2012

The 'Faith in Our Future' Blog reports that 80 Parishioners from Our Lady of the Way Emu Plains and St Finbar’s Glenbrook took part in a pastoral planning consultation on Tuesday 5 June.

The need for greater awareness of and active co-responsibility for the mission of the Church was raised by Parishioners at the consultation, as was the baptismal responsibility of all Catholics in the variety of their vocations. The importance of Catholic teachers as witnesses to the faith was underlined, as was the need to uphold faith and identity in the midst of social changes which can run counter to Gospel values.

There was an affirmation of local initiatives already underway, including youth Masses and outreach initiatives including St Vincent de Paul, and a call for a strengthening of youth support and evangelisation in the media.

These were just some of the responses gleaned from a positive and hope-filled conversation.
