Sydney Clergy Conference March 2023

Dear Fathers,
We are so grateful for the opportunity to spend time with you last week at the ADOS Clergy Conference. We are delighted to provide the recording of the presentation along with the resources we mentioned in our presentation.
While the conference was not an opportunity to promote our work directly, many of you asked about our resources. When referring couples to SmartLoving, we would encourage you to use the ADOS landing page:  This page gives them access to many courses at 50% discount and enables us to collaborate more efficiently with ADOS leaders to provide a professional service and ongoing support.
We'd also encourage you to think about any married parishioners who would be suitable Sponsor couples. We will be running Sponsor Orientation webinars throughout the coming months from which couples can discern if they would like to step into this ministry. There is no cost to the Sponsor couple or the parish.
Details are below.

As a new idea, the definition of the Marriage Catechumenate is still evolving. Originally presented as a point of comparison with the RCIA, it applied to the period between engagement (corresponding to the catechumenate) and into the newlywed years (corresponding with the mystagogy). Read more.
