ARCIC (the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission) was established in 1967 and has just published five agreed statements with commentaries from ARCIC II (1983–2005). The lecture will review their significance in the light of ecumenical progress since Vatican II and propose future priorities for theology, dialogue, church leadership and local pastoral activity.
Denis Edwards is a Professorial Fellow in Theology at Australian Catholic University and a priest of the Archdiocese of Adelaide.

For Christians, Lent is a time of repentance, and of preparation for our special annual commemoration of the heart of the Christian message: that our God, in Christ, became human as we are, that he conquered sin and death, and asks us to love him as he loved us. Repentance requires a change in a person – it requires that they develop a new understanding of their actions and themselves. This change in us should make a difference to the people we encounter, and to the society that we are part of.
