Walking together

Welcome to Proclaim, a regular newsletter to help keep parish leadership teams informed and inspired as theyproclaim and live out the joy of the Gospel.

Recently, as wecelebrated 175 years since the Diocese of Melbourne was first established, Archbishop Peter A Comensoli observed that our Archdiocese has always been something much richer and more essential than a mere institution. We remain, he observed,a‘domestic Church’, located in the homes, families, parishes and communities where we have gathered together to encourage each other and to share and pass down the faith. We are‘a family of families’. In this issue, we explore some of the ways that we are called, as God’s family, to support and accompany each other, in all our variety and distinctiveness, on the great adventure of discipleship, walking with each other in hope and love.

We are especially pleasedtoannounce the launch ofJourneying Together—ournew online sacraments of initiationresource, designedto help parents accompany their children on the excitingjourney of faith formation. And last week, onAboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday,we were reminded of the call to walk closely with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters, and were thrilled to congratulateSherry Balcombe, Coordinator of Aboriginal Catholic Ministry Victoria, who was presented with the 2022 NATSICC Service to the Community Award.We also hear about how two groups of parishes—in Melbourne’s north and in greater Geelong—have been taking the way of the Gospel together,joining forces to pilot theAlphaprocessin their communities. We are alsointroduced to theTake the Way of the Gospel Reference and Advisory Groupthat has been brought together to help implement this important strategyin parishes throughout the Archdiocese.

As wecontinue our journeyas thepeople of God in theArchdiocese of Melbourne, let’s keep walkingside by side—supporting and encouragingeach other—so thatwe might continue to pass down the life-changing message of God’s lovethat has been so faithfully passed down to us over 175 years.

Parishes work together to help people meet Jesus

As we emerge from lockdowns, many parishes are looking for ways to reach out to people and to draw them into community and into a relationship with Jesus. The Take the Way of the Gospel process is encouraging parishes to work together in developing new ways of pursuing this mission. Two groups of parishes—in the greater Geelong region and in Melbourne’s north—have decided to work together to ‘pilot’ the Alpha process and train potential leaders for upcoming parish Alphas.
