NEW! Parishes of Adelaide Podcast
Arch D Radio & Podcasting - James Meston
Here's another new way for the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide to stay connected during this time, when we are disconnected in a lot of ways. Every Wednesday, we’ll be releasing a new episode that will feature a pastoral message, the gospel reading and reflection for the coming Sunday, and conversations with two different parishes to see how they are staying connected with their congregations.
