The Bookends Project


About Bookends

The five-year Australian Province Apostolic Plan (PAP) 2019-2024 ‘Mission in Hope’ calls for five priorities.  The second priority, “Heal humanity and the world”, is linked to the second of the Universal Apostolic Preferences ‘To walk with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated, in a mission of reconciliation and justice and to collaborate in the care of our common home.’

Under the PAP, we are called to:   Build upon the Bookends Project to make a particular commitment to ongoing reconciliation with our First Nations people and accompanying and advocating for refugees and people seeking asylum.
