Building the Church We Need - Webinar Recordings

 
A series of Zoom events focused on Church Renewal

Over four sessions in May 2022, Yarra Theological Union – along with Garratt Publishing and the Australasian Catholic Coalition for Church Reform – presented a series of webinars.

An outstanding line-up of local and international experts offered insights into the Australian Plenary Council, the preparations for the Pope’s Synod of Bishops, and initiatives globally in places such as Germany, Ireland and more. Particular focus was given to the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s commissioned The Light from the Southern Cross report which offers an inclusive approach to governance – with a clear ethos of synodality.

Digital access to the recording of each session of the Building the Church We Need Webinars is now available to purchase.
