Proclaim: The Office for Mission Renewal was established in early 2020 to support the life of the Archdiocese of Melbourne in our aim to strive for ‘the missionary option’ in all we do. In responding to this call, we heed Pope Francis’ words in Evangelii Gaudium to seek ‘a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church’s customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channelled for the evangelisation of today’s world’. (§27)

The Proclaim team is at the service of our parish communities within the Archdiocese, offering strategies, resources and support. The team is divided into three domain areas:

Animation – focussed on parish renewal with a team of animation consultants who work directly in support of clergy and parish leadership teams.

Discipleship – supporting youth and young adults, campus ministry, family accompaniment and a vocations culture.

Formation – providing publications (including the To Know, Worship & Love texts) and resources for adult faith formation, liturgy, prayer and initiation.
