Launch and Resources

A Welcome Resource for all Disciples of Christ involved in Lay Pastoral MinistrySince the publication of Faithful Stewards of God’s Grace we have added to our webpage all the resources that were used in the Launch event in Brisbane. This includes the AV presentation that reviewed the history of lay pastoral ministry in Australia. Each separate section or chapter of the document can also be accessed.

News from the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle is that the lay pastoral ministers are working their way through Faithful Stewards of God’s Grace in ‘book group style’ focusing on one chapter each month and discussing the key ideas.

In Adelaide, lay pastoral associates are exploring Faithful Stewards of God’s Grace and reflecting on the recommendations. In addition, Faithful Stewards of God’s Grace is being promoted at Archdiocesan events. Next step in Adelaide is to introduce the document to priests/chaplains at deanery gatherings. Weekly archdiocesan e-news is promoting the publication too.
