Oceania Super – Regional Couple
Chris and John Dighton
Commenced their five-year term in January 2017
We have been members of the Teams Movement for many years and have been blessed to belong to a Team in Adelaide with five other supportive couples. Together we have shared many life milestones and our Team has sustained us through tough times and celebrated with us many moments of joy.
We have had a few different roles in the Movement over the years and we come to this new role with lots to learn but also with some things to give. What we can give is our absolute commitment to the importance and value of Teams in our communities, and how we can reach out to those couples who want to belong.
Our Movement, with a long history since 1939, has been open to couples worldwide to offer the hand of friendship to assist married couples to grow in their relationship and their community. Sharing our story in a small group of couples who make a commitment to meet every month for a meal, listen to each other and support our faith journey is a truly enriching experience.
Spiritual Counsellor for the Oceania Super Region
Fr Bob Wilkinson: Spiritual Counsellor for Oceania Super-Region
Fr Bob Wilkinson is an Adelaide priest who has been a member of Teams for 50 years since the Movement began in South Australia. Since he was ordained, his special commitment has been to Movements of the Laity. As editor of the Catholic press, he introduced Vatican ll as it unfolded. The first government of Papua New Guinea after independence invited him to work with them as a sociologist. During this time, he also served as Oceania chaplain of the International Young Christian Students Movement. The Adelaide Diocese centred its renewal around parish neighbourhoods while Bob was part of the project team. For the past 17 years, he has worked in parishes and continued with Teams and he says we are all still learning what it means to be church.
