The Mission of ALIVE IN THE SPIRIT

The Spirit is calling us to act boldly in responding to the signs of our times. Events in our world, and within our Church, present us with an opportunity to open our hearts and minds to act upon what the Spirit is asking of us at this time in Australia.

ALIVE IN THE SPIRIT invites people to engage in the life of Christ, and His Church, by:

  • Engage the wounded, the disillusioned, the disaffiliated, the discontented & disconnected members of the Body of Christ;
  • Heal the divisions that have caused pain in our Church;
  • Revitalise those Catholics who are just “hanging in there” so that they may once again share the Good News of Christ;
  • Encourage and resource those who have brave and bold evangelisation ideas.

“Being the Community Christ Calls Us To Be”

“A must for faith communities including clergy, staff, leadership teams, council members, ministers and volunteers; for those in pastoral care, for youth, family and education support, and all who accompany one another to be the community Christ calls us to be.”

Please read the media release here.

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”

– Galatians 5:22 – 26
