The Ivanhoe parish, led by Fr Paul Newton, has been active in organising dinner discussion nights every few weeks. These discussion nights help the community to engage with topics that are contemporary and affect day-to-day life. On Sunday 25 September, Fr Paul led the discussion topic, 'Is the Church homophobic?'.
It was an incredibly well attended event, with over 50 participants. The event attendee numbers have grown over the last session, showing that there is a fair amount of interest in contemporary topics. Fr Paul Newton brings home the need to meet people where they are at, and to welcome people to the fold. We sat down with him to talk about what was discussed on Sunday.
