SVD contingent ready to go for ‘Mission: One Heart, Many Voices’


Mission Conference2017 logoAn enthusiastic contingent of SVD confreres and staff are gearing up for the Mission: One Heart, Many Voices conference in Sydney next month.

Fr Tim Norton SVD is even winging his way home from Nemi, Italy where he now works as Director of Courses at the SVD’s Centro ‘Ad Gentes, to act as co-emcee of the conference and share his perspectives on Mission and Interculturality.

“We have made a significant commitment in sending both confreres and staff to attend this conference, because we believe it is an important Mission event in the life of the Church in Australia,” says Provincial, Fr Henry Adler SVD.

“We had done this in previous years for the Mission: One Heart, Many Voices conference too, and it has had a big impact on those who attend and borne fruit in our ongoing commitment to and understanding of Mission in the local and global context.”

Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen, Bishop of Parramatta, will give the keynote address at the conference breakfast on Tuesday, May 16. Other speakers include Fr Robert Schreiter CPPS, Prof Larissa Behrendt, Dr Cathy Ross, Sr Elaine Wainwright RSM, Mrs Evelyn Enid Parkin, and Fr Frank Brennan SJ.

For the first time, the program includes a series of Masterclasses on different aspects of Mission, with a range of outstanding speakers.

Sr Ruth Durick, President of Catholic Religious Australia says the conference will have inspiring input sessions and opportunities to share some of the challenges of particular areas of work and to receive encouragement on the journey.

“Mission: one heart many voices conference is a great opportunity for very diverse groups of people to gather, share, reflect and dialogue together about the important foundations of mission,” she says.

“The Church is multi-dimensional and multi-faceted in its mission and conferences such as Mission: one heart many voices, articulate some of this diversity and richness which is a grace for all of us.”
