The Archbishop's intention is for this day to provide us with the opportunity to focus on those people in our families and community who have experienced any sort of child- bearing loss during pregnancy or soon after. He has outlined the initiative in a pastoral letter which is available on the diocesan website at www. adelaide.catholic.org.au Monsignor David Cappo has been appointed to the honorary position of Senior Research Fellow in the School of Social and Policy Studies at Flinders University. The position will provide him with an opportunity for research and writing on social issues. He will also spend time in the United States this year, advising organisations on issues such as eliminating homelessness. Here in Adelaide he will explore innovative ways in which specific migrant groups can be better connected to the life of the church and look at more effective dialogue between the Church and our school communities. In other developments, Fr Dean Marin has been appointed Administrator of the Cathedral Parish and Fr Charles Gauci will be parish priest of Kangaroo Island parish, in addition to his role as parish priest of Noarlunga Seaford and Willunga parishes. This follows the drawing together of these three parishes under the Leap Ahead plan. Tenison Woods college student Cameron Millard reads the account from John's gospel of The Passion with fellow classmates, reflecting on the true meaning of Easter and the egg as the symbol of life. Photo: Nethanel Sutton Research post Day of the Unborn The official website for the Year of Grace, www.yearofgrace.catholic.org.au, has been launched, signalling the start of preparations for this important event for the Catholic Church in Australia. A Year of Grace is the Australian bishops' gift to the Church to celebrate and renew our faith and life as Catholics. It will begin at Pentecost 2012 and is an exhortation from the bishops of Australia to "Start afresh from Christ". Project Officer for the Year of Grace, Fr Peter Brock, said he hoped the site would become a hub for Catholics during the Year of Grace. "The enthusiasm of the bishops for this Year of Grace can be seen in the comments of four of them on the home page. They are calling the whole Catholic Church in Australia in join them in this time of renewed prayer, or what several of them have called a 'slow-motion retreat'." "In the coming weeks and months the National Planning Team will use the website to make resources available to individuals, parishes, schools and dioceses, so that people all over the country can respond to the invitation to 'start afresh from Christ'."
