Dear Fathers, Deacons, and Colleagues,

As you will be aware, in April 2023 Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB launched the
the process for the forming of an Archdiocesan Pastoral Council.

An Assembly of delegates from across the Archdiocese has been formed to focus primarily on the establishment of an Archdiocesan Pastoral Council and how this Council will reflect the lived experience of Synodality promoted by Pope Francis.

The first meeting of the Assembly Delegates is on Saturday 23 September 2023 followed by another meeting 13 July 2024.

Linked below you will find:

  •  Two PowerPoint slides of the Archdiocesan Assembly Prayer.
    •    A small selection of petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful.

The theme of the Assembly is ‘Journeying Together Led by the Spirit.’  By using the Assembly Prayer and the Prayers of the Faithful at Masses, meetings, and gatherings from now until July, we will promote the Journeying together as we pray for and with the Assembly delegates.

Kind regards,
