Information provided by Alive in the Spirit Conference Convenor, Lisa Bright.
Last year, over 1000 Australian & NZ bishops, priests, deacons, religious, pastoral councils, parish & diocesan staff and ministry teams participated in the Alive in the Spirit experience, inspired by many homegrown ideas, practical pathways and opportunities to renew and revitalise our pastoral settings.
In 2022, Alive in the Spirit returns, this year’s theme: “What does God require of us: To Act Justly, To Love Mercy & To Walk Humbly”. Endorsed by bishops from both Australia and NZ, this interactive online pastoral experience offers both individuals and groups in your Diocese a variety of ways to flexibly engage:
Standard Package grants one-month open access, with youth stream, including:
- the three-day conference (26-28 May) as a personal retreat experience, AND,
- the three-day conference (26-28 May) as a small group or parish intensive, AND,
- A suggested four-weekly cycle (over June): weekly sessions (or when you choose), for individuals & group
Membership Package grants all standard benefits, plus twelve-month open access – with options for monthly engagement with your group, and access to broader library of resources.
With our parishes and dioceses hungering for fresh hope, new ideas, and positive stories and models of practice in service of Christ’s mission, Alive in the Spirit engages your parishioners with over thirty workshops, amazing keynotes, and balancing on-screen input with time for off-screen prayer, reflection and a call to action.
Our Catholic Church offers so much richness, and Alive in the Spirit celebrates the good of who we are, while inviting us to continue to cooperate with the Holy Spirit as we engage with the Signs of the Times in our Oceania Region.
