Dr Paul Lentern will present our ACI webinar for March 2024, addressing the theme “Promoting the mission and vocation of lay people.”

It will follow our highly successful February webinar with Bishop Eugene Hurley. It will also provide an opportunity to dialogue and investigate the many issues raised during that session.

In addition, it will enable us to identify points we wish to focus on in drafting our ACI contribution to the Second Assembly of the Synod on Synodality, which is now rapidly approaching in October this year.

I hope you’ll join us!
