Children’s welfare, family interests and the rampant drug culture in Perth will be a few of the topics discussed by Perth Catholic Archbishop Barry Hickey in a new video series he launched on 20 January online.
In an attempt to speak to the broader public, the weekly video series “A Word for Today’s World with Archbishop Barry Hickey” will appear online every Friday from now on via The Faith Centre website, signed in Auslan and complete with subtitles and a transcript.
The Faith Centre for Evangelisation and Catholic Culture, the newest centre in the Perth Archdiocese, will produce the videos and host these on their website www.thefaith.org.au.
In his first episode, broadcast on 20 January, Archbishop Hickey commented on the hostility to Christianity some high-profile people showed last year and how, despite this, thousands attended Christmas Masses and kept Jesus central to their celebration.
Tune in Friday 27 January for episode two, and a piece of good news by visiting www.thefaith.org.au
