The Godless Country?
Are we living in a post-Christian Australia? So some people proudly proclaimed when more people marked “no religion” on the last census than marked “Catholic”. Declining religious affiliation in the secularising West, damaged Church credibility after the Royal Commission, relentless hostility to faith from sections of the media, bureaucracy and academy, the drip by drip reduction of religious liberties… there are reasons to think faith is doomed in Australia. But I wonder… In this talk I will ask where the Church is going in the face of these challenges, and whether ‘post-Christian’ is really an apt description for our culture.
Join us in the crypt at St Mary’s Cathedral from 6.30pm for refreshments. followed by the lecture from Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP.
