The following two bills touch central aspects of our faith, especially around the sacramentality and gift of life and marriage:
– Bill to Redefine the Definition of Marriage in Federal Parliament
– Bill to Legalise Voluntary Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide in NSW
There is much at stake for the future of our society in these two developments. It is vital that we all make our voices heard and to exercise our right and power as citizens to shape the society we live in. Regularly updated information, resources and links for both issues can be found on the Diocesan website: www.dbb.org.au
