‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry; he who believes in me will never thirst.’
Matthew 28:16-20

The ethical and missionary implications of the Eucharist for the Church’s communion of faith will always be incomplete while the poor go hungry, for “we cannot properly receive the Bread of Life without sharing bread for life with those in want”.

Uluru Statement

Listening and discernment by Australian Catholics in our Plenary Council journey has resulted in the emergence of many key themes. One of these is renewing the Church’s solidarity with First Australians. The Plenary Council is an opportunity for the Catholic Church in Australia to make a public response to the Uluru Statement from the Heart and increase opportunities for collaboration with local indigenous communities.

What is the Uluru Statement from the Heart?
Following a nation wide consultation, the First Nations National Constitutional Convention at Uluru in May 2017 issued an agreed Statement from the Heart which called for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and for a Makarrata Commission that would undertake a process of agreement making between governments and First Nations and truth telling about our history. Aboriginal Australians have invited all Australians to consider these matters.

Hence, our Diocesan Participation of Indigenous Catholics group has considered ways of building our parish communities’ awareness of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. Each parish has been given a canvas copy of the Statement for display. Other resources have also been issued to parishes to assist with the call for our increased awareness of and engagement with the journey towards constitutional reform.
