AMPJP AGM-Forum 20-21 August 2023
The Council received a report from the working group which is organising the AMPJP AGM and Dinner to be held in Melbourne on 20-21 August 2023. Each MPJP is to nominate their preferred Member cameo topic on: “An issue with which our MPJP Stewards wrestle is…” (focus on MPJP Stewards not their ministries). This could be one of the following topics: acting as a college, formation, discernment, recruitment, spiritual leadership, balancing civil/canonical, mission-focused, hearing the voice of those at the margins, other topic chosen by you. We would prefer not to hear the same topic more than once so be the first to choose a topic. Member cameo is a 3-minute presentation (approx. 200 words) or an A3 poster.

The Council agreed on the text of its statement outlining why it is making a commitment to implement Laudato si’ via the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development’s Laudato si’ Action Platform (LSAP). The statement will be sent to LSAP, Catholic media and posted on the AMPJP website. Over the coming months, the AMPJP will develop a basic LSAP plan.
