WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE BREAD OF LIFE FELLOWSHIP?
The aims of the Bread of Life Fellowship are set down in the
'STATUTES OF BREAD OF LIFE FELLOWSHIP
A PRIVATE ASSOCIATION OF CHRIST’S FAITHFUL'
The Statutes were originally approved on 13th May 1998 by the Bishop of the Diocese of
Parramatta, Kevin Manning. These current statutes were reviewed by and approved by
Bishop Manning on the 9th September 2009.
Section 4 reads:
In accordance with CIC canon 298 §1 the purposes for which the Fellowship is established are:
a) to provide a charismatic expression of their faith for Catholics who seek “to follow this form of spiritual life” [CIC canon 214];
b) to assist the Members in “discovering and living their proper vocation and mission” through a “totally integrated formation”, so that in their daily lives they are “guided and sustained by the Holy Spirit” [CL 59-60];
c) to share in the evangelizing mission of the Church particularly in de-Christianized environments [EV 52];
d) to foster relationships with other Catholic Fellowships and Catholic Communities, in particular through the Fellowship’s membership of the International Catholic Fraternity;
e) to provide an ecumenical formation for the Members and to “foster ecumenism as it is understood by the Church” [CIC canon 383 §3];
f) to ensure the fulfilment of its purposes is directed to the common good of the Church [CIC canon 323 §2].
