Seminar Series starts 10th August – Creating a Just Synodal Church – Please register

In this, its 50th year of Theological Education, Yarra Theological Union – along with the Australasian Coalition for Catholic Church Reform and Garratt Publishing– invite you to attend this series of ground-breaking, crucial zoom webinars as we journey together towards a just, synodal Church.

Join us over four Wednesday evenings in August as we focus on synodality, governance, and leadership of the Church in the context of Church inclusion.  

As the official Plenary process moves to a new phase, there is much work still required to create a just, synodal Church; a Church where all are included equally and inclusively.

You’ll hear from an outstanding line-up of local and international experts offering insights post the Plenary’s second assembly, the ongoing work required as we move towards the Pope’s Synod of Bishops, and insights from the German Synodal Path.

Every Wednesday from 10 August until 31 August at 7.30pm (AEST) via Zoom


$22 inc GST (this provides access to all 4 sessions)
