Anthony Randazzo has been delighted with the reception of his first pastoral
letter to the people of the Diocese of Broken Bay and has developed a Lenten
method based on his top six pastoral priorities to bring the communities of the
Diocese together in preparation for Easter.
Program 2021 is titled Jesus Christ, the
Alpha and the Omega, and considers the
Bishop’s priorities alongside the Sunday readings of the Lenten liturgical
season. The priorities include the person of Jesus Christ and themes such as
discipleship, building a culture of vocation, unity, education and the
gatherings such as what can be expected as groups journey through a Lenten
program are ideally suited to the times we have been experiencing in the past
year due to COVID-19 restrictions explained Bishop Anthony.
walk this journey together in family, parish or community groups, or you can
choose to do it individually,” said Bishop Anthony. “It will help us probe the
mystery of faith during Lent this year.”
Program was developed by the dynamic new Evangelisation Broken Bay team, that
has recently employed new appointments in the areas of youth, life, marriage
and family and RCIA and sacramental life.
“I pray you
have a fruitful Lenten season so that we might approach together the Easter
mystery, with joy and expectation to meet the Risen Lord,” said Bishop Anthony.
