Being Church Together

Being Church Together is a collaboration of the Archdiocese of Adelaide, Diocese of Port Pirie and Catholic Education which seeks to offer a guiding theology, principle, and framework for dialogue between Catholic schools communities and Catholic worshipping communities under the united banner of ‘parish’.

Being Church Together will be published in late 2022.



Appreciative Visitation with Catholic Schools 2017-18

Prior to the development of Being Church Together, many healthy and vibrant parish-school relationships were noted during visits to Catholic Schools conducted by the Archdiocese of Adelaide in 2017 and 2018. An appreciative listening approach guided interactions with school boards, parents and friends, and staff meetings. This paper highlights practical and creative ways in which schools and parishes build, sustain and repair local relationships.
