The Plenary Council is the highest formal gathering of the church across the country and brings together Catholics of many different backgrounds, seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit to discern what God is asking of the Church in Australia. At the end of this long period of listening to the Holy Spirit speaking through the voices of the faithful, Australia’s bishops will vote on any future directions for the Church in our country.
