Assembly of the Church in Oceania

16 February 2023 by

The recent regular meeting of the Federation of Catholic Bishops Conferences of Oceania was expanded to include lay people so that the meeting would also fulfill the requirements of a gathering of the “continental” Church.

Across the world continental gatherings are taking place for Bishops and others to discern the needs of their Church in the light of the Synod on Synodality Document for the Continental Stage.

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has posted news on aspects of the Oceania gathering:

Opening Mass

Focus on Care for Creation

Focus on synodality

Exploring a theology of the Pacific

Statement: our ocean home and the call to conversion
