A vision for our diocese
Over the past decade the Archdiocese of Adelaide has been responding to incremental change, such as parish amalgamations and the decline in numbers and rise in average age of priests.
At the Baptism: Heart of Ministry conference held in late 2008 Archbishop Philip Wilson announced there was a need to make a major leap in our vision and understanding of what resources would be like in five and 10 years time and how they could be re-organised to best serve the community.
Since then the Leap Ahead team has been holding conversations with groups of people involved in various aspects of the life of the church as it explores a new model of church for the future.
As part of the team’s ongoing consultation with the community, these pages will provide the latest information on the Leap Ahead process such as key events and publications.
