CRA’s Australian Mission Network (AMN) comprises seven Religious whose congregations’ main focus is mission work in Australia and overseas. Once defined in territorial terms, mission is now understood as a basic attitude of the Church wherever it is in reaching out to proclaim God’s saving presence in the world.
The members of AMN meet bi-monthly by teleconference with a representative from Catholic Mission. Catholic Mission is the Australian arm of the Catholic Church’s global mission aid agency, which is part of a world-wide network of Pontificial Mission Societies.
As well as sharing ideas and information, this group organises lecture series on key areas of mission and on topics such as inter-religious dialogue. The group is working with Catholic Mission and other agencies on a national conference on global mission which will be held in Australia in May 2013.
