Real talk is underway
Geraldine talks to three members for their impressions of the conversations thus far: to Virginia Bourke, the chair of Mercy Health in Victoria and St John Ambulance Victoria, who's a lawyer with considerable experience in corporate governance as well as charity work.
Fr Peter Williams, the Vicar-General of the Parramatta Diocese in NSW, ordained as a Catholic priest in 1992 having moved from an Anglican background, director of Liturgy for World Youth Day in 2008.
And to Francine Pirola, who runs Catholic family groups and the Marriage Resource Centre in Sydney.
All enthusiastic about the process, they each offer different perspectives on how members are offering perspectives on the future shape of the Church.
