Terms and Conditions

Catholic Outlook competition to win 3 x copy of Matters of Life and Faith valued at $29.95 each.

Catholic Outlook (Catholic Diocese of Parramatta ABN 99 716 962 606) is operating this competition at their offices, Bethany Centre, 470 Church Street, Parramatta, NSW 2150 between Thursday 26 August 2021 to Thursday 9 September 2021 all participants must agree to the following Terms and Conditions.

You have the chance to win a beautiful new book about faith and fatherhood – what works, what did not, and the struggle to recognise parenting skills must adapt as children grow and develop their own personalities.

To celebrate Father’s Day 2021, and thanks to Coventry Press, we’re giving away three copies of Matters of Life and Faith by Paul Mitchell.

Paul is a master storyteller at work, someone whose faith informs his natural gifts. His deep understanding that resurrection is about our everyday lives is reflected in the stories of ordinary events, the surprises we meet along the way, and the people who enhance our love for life, our children, our partners and ourselves.

“It’s calming and heartening to watch a father quietly sift his daily life for what is sacred” Helen Garner

“There has been a renewed focus on fatherhood and masculinity in this country, and Paul’s work feels particularly current and necessary, revealing how those concerns intersect with matters of faith.” – David Halliday, editor of
Eureka Street and former editor of The Melbourne Catholic.
