Mission: one heart many voices

A multi-sector dialogue on living the joy of the Gospel and leading Mission

Australia's premier conference on mission

The event offers a unique opportunity to listen, converse and experience the many and diverse voices that are an expression of the one heart of mission. Above all, the conference is a time to read the signs of the time with an aim of affirming what we do well, nurturing our growth and rethink and reformulate how we effectively live and lead mission today and tomorrow.


The popular conference jointly organised by Catholic Mission and Catholic Religious Australia returned for a fourth edition in May 2019 at Sydney's SMC Conference and Function Centre. Over 450 participants turned out to hear enthralling keynotes from Dr Carol Zinn ssj, Bishop Paul Tighe, and Mrs Ravina Waldren, before engaging with more than 50 workshops, masterclasses and facilitated discussions on the conference program.
