Bishop announces Australian delegates to world Families meeting
The Chairman of the Bishops' Committee for the Family and for Life, Bishop Eugene Hurley, has announced the selection of a couple to be the official delegates of the Australian Catholic Bishops' Conference to the Fourth World Meeting of Families.
They are Anne and Peter McGowan of Sydney. The McGowans were selected from candidates nominated by their local bishops.
The World Meeting of Families will be held in Manila next January.
"The Holy Father is highly committed to these World Meetings and always attends them. I am sure the McGowans will be worthy representatives for Australian Catholic families at this gathering," said Bishop Hurley.
Mr and Mrs McGowan are active members of St Christopher's parish, Holsworthy. They have four children. Peter is employed as a pastoral care worker at St Vincent's Hospital, Darlinghurst. Anne is employed by Natural Family Planning Services, Sydney as supervisor of NFP teachers and family life educators.
They are thrilled at their selection and consider it a great honour to have been chosen to represent the Catholic families of Australia.
