Bishop McKenna recently attended the 8th Forum of the National Council of Churches in Australia
Held every three years, the theme of this Forum was: "Mission Shaped Ecumenism"; What is the call of God for the Church in Australia?
Bishop Michael attended as part of the Catholic delegation and took the message to his colleagues in the NCCA that practical ecumenism is alive and well across the parishes of the Diocese of Bathurst.
“The road is not always easy, but we are urged on by the knowledge that it is Christ's will that his Church should live as one body, proclaiming one faith” the Bishop said.
Bishop McKenna was invited to lead the Ecumenical Service of the Forum.
