A welcome from Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
Dear sisters and brothers
I welcome lay people from the Province of Queensland and beyond, gathering at St Paul's Anglican School, to this Lay Conference.
The theme for the Conference is ‘Reimagine Faith Formation for the 21st Century’. We are delighted to be hosting John Roberto as the keynote speaker.
John Roberto is an American teacher, author and consultant specialising in faith formation models and tools to address the lives of 21st century families, children, adolescents and adults. He is a world renowned expert on faith formation and intergenerational ministry. His credentials are impressive and, with decades of ministry experience, it seems that his ideas work.
I hope that the Conference program, which includes opportunities for learning and sharing with one another, will benefit you in whatever ministry setting you are operating in.
The Conference is an important occasion for lay people and the Church as a whole. It presents a unique opportunity for learning, sharing, networking and building collegiality at a provincial level.
I pray that the Conference will be a rewarding time spent together and may God’s blessing be upon us all.
