Part 2 Parish Renewal Formation



The Parish Renewal Team will embark on Part Two of its four-part Parish Formation seminar series, in October and November 2021.


In part one, the Parish Renewal Team focussed on unpacking the parish pastoral council constitution and on a broad overview of parish pastoral planning. Four seminars were held across the metropolitan attended by forty-seven parishes and one hundred and ten clergy and parish council members. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive.


Part 2 of the Parish Formation program will expand on, and develop further, the themes of Discernment and Prayer. The seminar will examine how these cornerstones of Catholic faith are central to the operation of parish pastoral councils and will offer a practical model of how to apply discernment practices to decision making. There will also be further exploration of the practical elements of pastoral planning.


The part 2 seminar will be held at the following locations. While it is desirable you attend a seminar in a location nearby your home parish, please feel free to choose the one that suits you best.


  • 16th October Whitfords Parish, 270 Camberwarra Dr, Craigie
  • 23rd October Canning Vale Parish, 151 Amherst Way, Canning Vale
  • 30th October Greenmount Parish, 96 Innamincka Rd, Greenmount
  • 6th November Spearwood Parish, 36 Troode, St Munster

All seminars will commence at 10.00 am but please feel free to join us for coffee and tea from 9.30 am. The seminar will conclude by 3.30 pm each day.
