Report Back from APC meeting Nov 2014

Archbishop Stephen Brislin gave us a wonderful overview of the recent Extraordinary Synod of Bishops held in Rome.  His power point presentation and a short video of the event can be downloaded at the link below.

Fr Hugh O Connor gave us an in-depth workshop on the Child Safeguarding Policy and discussion followed on the most effective way of implementing the Policy in Parishes.  The aim of the Policy is to make sure all our children are safe and protected from harm at all times.

Dates for major Archdiocesan events were distributed.  Further details will follow for all these events.

The long-awaited Policy for Catechesis was promulgated on 4 November 2014 by Archbishop Brislin. Printed copies were blessed and distributed to those present.  Further copies are available from the CPD offices.  This policy comes into effect immediately and it is most important that all Catechists attend training and workshops to be held  in 2015.

We are still waiting for the Responses to the SACBC Phase III questionnaire from many Parishes.  Please send these in ASAP.  Similarly we also require your Ecclesia Statistics.

Photographs from the APC are on our Archdiocese of Cape Town FaceBook page.  Please “like” our page and you will be kept up to date with news from all our events.
