We are believers

who are attempting

to establish

a forum for conversation

within the Catholic Church

of Australia.

Our aim is to prompt

open exchanges

among the community

of believers,

mindful of the diversity

of expressions of faith

in contemporary Australia.

This springs explicitly

from the spirit of

Pope John XXIII

and Vatican II:

"Let there be unity

in what is necessary,

freedom in

what is unsettled,

and charity

in any case."

(Gaudium et Spes, n.92)

Mary McAleese

On Sunday afternoon of

September 7 2014 the

former President of Ireland,

was the guest of

Aquinas Academy

and Catalyst for Renewal

for the Rosemary Goldie

Memorial Lecture in the

Sydney Town Hall.

It was a memorable occasion!

Radio National's Andrew West

highlights were replayed

on Andrew's Religion and
