The latest news about the Calvary takeover

A Message from Father Tony Percy
On Monday, 4 September 2023, the Senate will conduct its hearing enquiry into the ACT Greens-Labor Government's unjust takeover of Calvary Public Hospital. It begins at 6 pm and runs to 8 pm.
You are most welcome to come to Parliament House, Canberra, for the hearing. A full room overflowing with ordinary Australian citizens would be good.
I spoke again with Ray Hadley on Monday, 28 August 2023, about the unjust Calvary takeover, the ACT Government’s legislation to legalise illicit drugs, and its plan to allow Voluntary Assisted Dying for teenagers who display ‘decision-making capacity.’ It accompanies this brief update.
After the Senate enquiry, I will be in touch about our proposal to petition every single politician in our country to ensure that the unjust compulsory acquisition of Calvary is the first and last unjust acquisition of its kind in our country’s history.
Again, thanks for your interest and support.

Resources for the approaching October Synod

The entire Catholic community is praying for guidance and wisdom from the Holy Spirit in this important time for our Church as we discern where God is calling us to be.

We encourage faith communities and groups across Australia to use these prayers in a variety of ways:
•            family prayer
•            group prayer and devotion
•            in the liturgy, where appropriate
•            novenas
•            personal prayer
•            prayer in the classroom
•            prayer before meetings
•            praying with the saints
•            praying the Rosary
Together 2023 Prayer Meetings
Several groups around the world, including some from Australia, have registered groups that will be meeting either in the lead-up to the Synod, or during the Together 2023 Prayer Vigil on 30 September. More information about these groups can be found on the Together2023 website under “Prayers elsewhere in the world”, or at this link:
Video on Synodality
Fr Ormond Rush, who served on the Synod of Bishops’ theological commission, and has been appointed as one of the experts to advise at the upcoming Synod, has recorded a video explaining what Synodality is and what his hopes for the Synod are. The video runs for 8 and a half minutes and can be a useful resource for sharing the concept of Synodality with others, such as at the end of parish Mass, during a small group meeting, or in a newsletter to parents of parish school students. The video can be found here:
Other Resources
I remind you that many other resources and links to useful information can also be found on the Australian Synodal Church webpage:
and on the official website for the Synod 2021-2024:
Thank you all for your continued prayers in preparation for the Synod.
