On Thursday 26 July 2018, Bishop Brian Mascord issued a pastoral letter and support kit outlining the process and timeline for the Diocese's engagement with Plenary Council 2020:

The pastoral letter provides details of the key dates of the listening processes for Plenary Council 2020 that have been put in place for the Diocese of Wollongong. A vital part of this is the selection of a local animator for faith communities and the commissioning of them at a dicocesan launch Mass on Saturday 18 August 2018 at St John Vianney Co-Cathedral, Fairy Meadow.

The support kit provides more information on the role and selection and training of local animators and important dates to note in 2018.

For more general information about Plenary Council 2020, please visit the national Plenary Council 2020 website and take time to watch the videos and read about the plenary council process, theology and history. Also, listen to the prayer resources to help tune our hearts to "listen to what the Spirit is saying" (Revelations 2:7).

The Office for Renewal and Evangelisation will provide additional resources to parishes, schools and other communities to help them engage in the process. These will be made available at the diocesan launch.
