Australia’s fifth Plenary Council is finally underway, with all 278 members gathering online from across the country for daily discernment and discussion on the Council’s 16-point agenda. If you’ve missed the daily livestreams, catch up on some of the key themes and stories below.

Over three years ago the decision was announced to hold a Plenary Council and the People of God began preparing for this historic moment by listening to God and by listening to one another’s stories of faith. After this time of listening and journeying the Catholic Church of Australia will gather for the first assembly of the Plenary Council from 3-10th October 2021. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the First Assembly will be held via ‘one device-one person’ mode. There will be 17 members participating in this gathering who have been called from the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

The Plenary Council website will provide daily livestreams of parts of the opening Plenary sessions and Masses (including the Opening Mass on Sunday 3rd October).

Plenary Council Masses and daily morning prayer booklets for full participation are available here:
