Welcome to Issue 17 of The Record Magazine, which is focused on the upcoming 2020 Plenary Council. I am sure most of you would have heard about the Plenary Council – but if you haven’t, now is the chance to make a difference.

In a recent article published by our national colleagues, Shane Dwyer from the National Centre for Evangelisation talks about the need to stay on topic, particularly when looking at the question posed by the Australian Bishops, to which we are all encouraged to give a response, ‘What do you believe God is asking of us in Australia at this time?’

Mr Dwyer explains even before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses into Child Abuse, the Australian bishops commissioned a Year of Grace, as a way to help us all begin to prepare for this event.

This Issue of The Record Magazine gives a overview of some of the technical aspects of Plenary 2020 (such as Canon Law), while also taking a look at what has been happening here in Perth.

The Record Magazine is a magazine for the people and I hope you will enjoy taking the time to engage with us. Please feel free to share your thoughts
