‘Selecting nine new Australian bishops this year - involving the faithful’
by Peter Johnstone, President, Catholics for Renewal Inc.
This year, nine new Australian diocesan bishops could be appointed – NINE! including a new archbishop of Melbourne. All the faithful have a vital interest in these selections. This is an opportunity for inspiring leadership with the help of the people of each diocesan community. Catholics for Renewal is developing a proposal for including the people of God in the selection process and we are seeking views on how best to do this.
