Webinar - Synod and Synodality - Bishop Vincent Long Garrett Publishing
28 April 2024
The webinar discusses 'Synod and Synodality' and reflects on recent synodal processes within the Catholic Church. The speakers emphasize the importance of these processes not just in producing documents but in fostering communal relationships, nurturing hope, and inspiring transformative action. Cardinal Greg and Pope Francis highlight the spirit-led approach to the synod, urging openness and support for all, especially the weary and oppressed. Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen shares his experiences with synodal processes in Parramatta and Rome. He describes how the local synod in Parramatta, held concurrently with the Universal Synod, encouraged bold and creative engagement, reaching out to diverse community members and incorporating their voices into a meaningful ecclesial dialogue. Despite challenges, including opposition and disruptions, the synod was marked by a spirit of unity and purpose, reflecting a rich diversity of the local Catholic community.

A Guide to leadership - Simon Sinek Simon Sinek
18 January 2024
Simon Sinek's presentation, 'A Guide to Leadership,' explores the true essence and challenges of leadership. He emphasizes that leadership is not about being in charge but about taking care of those in our charge. Sinek points out that most people are trained to be good at their jobs, but there's a lack of training in how to lead others. This gap often results in managers who micromanage instead of true leaders.

Growing in Synodality Michael Whelan sm
03 July 2023
“We gain control by letting go. We come to know by not knowing,” says Fr Michael Whelan SM ashe explains the power of listening within. Life, sooner or later - if we let it - leads us into the realisation that the more we know, the more we know we do not know. In other words, we experience the inexhaustible intelligibility of reality. This is what we call mystery. Life does have many problems that invite solutions. But life itself is not a problem. We should not look for solutions to life. Life is a mystery to be lived. As in life, there are many problems in the Church that invite solutions. But, as in life, the Church - our life together in Christ - is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to be lived.
 
Group Activity - Rabbit Proof Fence Recorded Picture Company
26 May 2023
'Rabbit-Proof Fence' is a powerful and poignant true story set in Australia during the 1930s. It follows the journey of three young Aboriginal girls, Molly, Daisy, and Gracie, who are forcibly removed from their families by the Australian government as part of its policy to assimilate Indigenous children into white society. The girls are taken to a remote settlement, but determined to return home, they escape and embark on an incredible journey back to their families, using the vast rabbit-proof fence as their guide. The film highlights the resilience, strength, and indomitable spirit of these girls as they defy all odds and navigate the harsh landscape, facing numerous challenges and encounters along the way. Their story sheds light on the unjust treatment of Indigenous Australians and serves as a powerful testament to the unbreakable bond between mother and child and the enduring spirit of the Aboriginal people.

Sitting on the floor Marist Laity Australia
23 January 2023
If people are sitting on the floor, try to spend some time on the floor as well – try not to always be standing above them. It can be helpful to use a handout or projector at these times, that the focus is not you, but rather focus away from you. You are not the most important person in the room.
 
Tool - A Spiritual Conversation Fr. John Dardis, S.J.
07 June 2021
God is working in each person. The Spirit of God is present. Even if I disagree in that person, I need to be open to what they are saying. What is the Trinity trying to say? How can I catch on to what the Trinity is saying?
