On 12 December, 2020, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, also known as the Star of the New Evangelisation, Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP launched the new Mission Plan for the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, entitled Go Make Disciples.
The fruit of some five years of conversation, research and discernment, this vision for the parishes, chaplaincies and other Eucharistic communities of Sydney will set our direction and priorities for some years to come.
Archbishop Fisher shares, “As the Church in Sydney, we seek to live out the mission of Jesus Christ in a time of unprecedented change. Sydney’s population continues to grow while the way people live, work and worship has changed… we rightly cling to those things that are perennial: one faith, one Lord, one Baptism (Ephesians 4:5). But we need new passion, expressions and methods of evangelisation and community-building in Sydney.
Every pastor, every member of the faithful and all our parish communities are called to deep spiritual renewal as disciples, to being better connected with each other, and to reaching out better to others”.
