Australia: More training for dedicated ordinary people

Australian bishops want to provide better training and further education for ordinary people who are dedicated to the church. They began doing this at their virtual public meeting in May, the results of which are only now being known.

It is important for Catholic lay people to develop a “better understanding and greater knowledge” about their specific work in the church or church. In the training and further education of the laity, the bishops relied not only on the church but also on the apparently “secular” institutions.

In addition, the bishops decided to do more for fellowship and better contact with each other in the college. In a final message to the pope, they pledged to fight abuse again.

Concern about Nagorno-Karabakh

October 2021 to July 2022 The Australian Church is planning a full council. This is the fifth like this, but the first in the last eighty years. The relevant status of the arrangements was certainly an important topic in the discussions of the Conference of Bishops.

In political terms, the bishops of Australia were particularly concerned about the danger of Christian monasteries and sites in Nagorno-Karabakh after the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. They have also announced the social word for August. They call on the official Australian Indigenous Representative to provide current advice to the government and Parliament on legal initiatives and plans that affect Indigenous peoples.
