On Thursday 28th February, Bishop Bill Wright appeared on Aaron Kearney's Breakfast program, broadcast on 1233 ABC Radio, Newcastle.
Joining the Bishop were some local Catholics including Christine Cavenagh from the Newcastle parish and James Elliott from MacKillop parish (Charlestown), who is also a member of the Council for Ministry of Young People.
The group discussed some of their hopes for the new Pope and the challenges that face the Church as it arrives at what Aaron called a "fork in the road". The short, intriguing discussion took in a number of viewpoints from a wide spectrum of the Newcastle Catholic faithful.
