Periodically during the year, the Oceania Super Region publishes its newsletter – Equipes Notre Dame, which is distributed to all members.
The Oceania Super Region of Teams also publishes a range of brochures and booklets that are available from the literature couple – Sue & Bren Milsom +61 7 55224880 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Currently, the following publications are available:
This Study Topic – Holy Couple: Joy of the Church, witness to the world – aims to call our attention to the following fact: the more we sanctify ourselves as people, couples and as Base Teams – our ultimate vocation – the more we will become fruitful to the Church and to the world; and the more fruitful will be our mission. Vocation and Mission!
This document “Vocation and Mission at the dawn of the third millennium” is the work of the communal energy established in the Teams of Our Lady to respond to the exhortation of Pope Francis addressed to the universal Church “for a new chapter of evangelisation”. (Evangelii Gaudium 1).
This Oceania edition is not the original document given to the Teams of Our Lady by the International Responsible Team in Fatima in July 2018. To prepare it as a study topic the text was adapted for the Teams Movement in Oceania in April 2019. The text was prepared by Penny and Peter Cahalan and the discussion questions prepared and collated by Cath and Bob Dixon with contributions from Chris and John Dighton, Anne and Kevin Taylor, Sue and Adrian Fordham and Faye and Kevin Noonan.
The Gathering in Fatima was a terrific event. One of the highlights for many was the morning meditations on conference theme of the Prodigal Son by Archbishop de Mendonça.

News From the International Team
Faithfulness and Forgiveness
By Jack Dominian
On a number of occasions over the past few years, Jack Dominian, has spoken to gatherings of Teams Couples on the importance in family life of a stable and loving relationship founded on Christian Marriage. His talks to Teams have always reinforced the certainty that married love fully expresses their witness to the perfect love of God. He has impressed his listeners with his knowledge and understanding of what it means to be united as a Christian couple in today’s world.
At the Teams Gathering in 2000 at Santiago de Compostella, Dr Dominian was invited to give a talk to a large assembly of couples from all countries around the world where Teams of Our Lady are established. This talk on Faithfulness and Forgiveness in marriage was immediately recognised as one of the highlights of the Gathering and rather than just keep the text for future reading, it was felt that it could become the basis of a Study Topic.
At the Regional and Sector levels, a variety of local newsletters may also be published. Details of any such publications are shown in the web pages for Regions.
