The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has responded to this crisis by throwing their support behind a national men’s conference next month, organised by MenALIVE.


Divided into four sessions comprising talks, prayers and discussions, the ACBC National Catholic Men’s Gathering will address the demographic crisis, men’s unique role in the life and mission of the Church as well as the role men have played since its inception. The conference will also touch on the crisis of masculinity in the wider culture, reflected in the life of the Church. 

“The most important and urgent response we need from the Church in Australia today is to find imaginative and prophetic ways to reach men,” he said.

The pre-recorded sessions for the ACBC National Catholic Men’s Gathering will be accessible from Saturday 15 August.
