Special Workshop and Annual General Meeting 2018
Since 2004, Australian Reforming Catholics has held several public face-to-face conferences on matters of faith, Church teachings, and other aspects of reform.
In more recent years, the onset of COVID-19 has restricted meetings and the convenience of video communication had enabled easier participation.
Although meeting in a large venue creates the opportunity to develop strong bonds among members, we now hope to continue to achieve this in other, more cost effective, ways.
