The Official website for “A Year of Grace” was launched on 2/3/12, signalling the start of preparations for this important event for the Catholic Church in Australia.
A Year of Grace is the Australian bishops’ gift to the Church to celebrate and renew faith and life as Catholics. It will begin at Pentecost 2012 and is an exhortation from the bishops of Australia to "Start afresh from Christ."
Project Officer for the Year of Grace Fr Peter Brock hopes that the site will become a hub for Catholics during the Year of Grace.
“The enthusiasm of the bishops for this Year of Grace can be seen in the comments of four of them on the home page. They are calling the whole Catholic Church in Australia in join them in this time of renewed prayer, or what several of them have called a 'slow-motion retreat'.”
