The Federation of the Catholic Bishops Conferences of Oceania is holding an online Preparatory Event in November for the FCBCO’s February Suva general assembly.
The Preparatory Event Our Ocean Home has been scheduled for two hours on each day of November 28th, 29th and 30th:
- From 5pm to 7pm NZ Time.
This scheduling allows all participants to engage with and experience an online process of listening, discerning and conversation together. Please note that the sessions are not repeated but rather explore a different theme each session on Our Ocean Home.
The style and format of the Preparatory Event will be framed by processes of storytelling, reflection and theological dialogue, akin to cultural experiences of Talanoa or yarning circle style conversations.
Invitations to the Preparatory Event are being sent to the Bishops of Oceania from each of the General Secretaries. Consecrated and lay women and men, young people, ecumenical networks and ecclesial regional networks are all welcome in the spirit of synodal action.
