While the "Call to Connect" ministry is based in Canberra ACT, its vision includes the regional and rural areas of the Canberra & Goulburn Archdiocese.
Currently the ministry is running as described below, but it is in transition for a new beginning in 2019 with it's membership to Catholic Leaders Formation Network. Link to the network is in LINKS so watch this space for an exciting new direction.
There are three strands to the ministry:
* Spiritual opportuntites to gather will be for those areas where the prayer/sharing groups exist and open to these broader faith communities. These gatherings will be advertised in various ways as needed. Through the email register, through parish bulletins, the Voice newspaper and on the Canberra & Goulburn Archdiocesan website.
* 'Prayer & Sharing' groups - These groups have around 6-8 women who meet every 3rd week for two hours in a home, parish centre or other convenient location. The groups have common elements of prayer, hospitality and sharing, and are free to develop their own characteristics and style to reflect the gifts and spirituality of the membership.
Starter kits now available **
* A "blind" email register under the banner of "Women of the Archdiocese". This is one method of facilitating knowledge about upcoming events between different Catholic organisations and individuals in the Archdiocese. **Contact us via this site if you would like to be added to the "blind" email register to receive event emails, or if you would like to advertise an event you are organising & which would be of interest to women.
** If you would like to start a 'prayer & sharing' group using the CTC
model, or enquire further, please contact us via this site.
Enquiries from other Dioceses are welcome.
Enquiries from other Christian traditions also welcome.
For all other enquiries, please use the contact page.
The Members Area is for CTC 'prayer & sharing' group facilitators only.
