The Triennial National Conference for Pastors and Pastoral Associates will be held in Adelaide February 5- 7, 2013 at the Hilton Hotel, Victoria Square, Adelaide.

The Adelaide Archdiocese would very much like you to be a part of this Conference in which we will honour the Anniversary of Vatican Council II.

Our theme for the Conference, “An Echo in their Hearts”,
– is taken from the Preface of the Vatican II Document Gaudium et Spes. 2012
– is the 50th Anniversary of the commencement of Vatican II and
– this Conference aims to revisit several of the key themes from the documents.

Our goal for this important event is for these words to “echo” in all of our hearts, as we look both theologically and practically at our Church in 2013 and the work we are doing in our Parishes, Schools and Communities.

We are pleased to have Rev. Dr Philip Marshall VG, PhD of the Archdiocese of Adelaide and Dr Deb Organ, D.Min., Master of Social Work, USA and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Sydney, Bishop Comensoli as our Keynote Speakers.

The Conference Workshops will be interactive and will reflect the important work and partnership of Pastors and Pastoral Associates. It will provide networking opportunities where further relationships between the Dioceses across Australia and New Zealand can be built.
