For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission
A two-year ‘synodal’ process is taking place across the Catholic Church. This is an important moment in the life of the world Church.
The Synod is an invitation to people across our community of faith to ‘walk together’, with every member of the Church encouraged to participate.
Bishops will play a key role, listening to the people of God in their particular Church and, under the power of the Holy Spirit, to hear and discern what is being said of that Church. Each local Church is a fundamental part of the Universal Church, so what is shared within each local Church is important, contributing to the whole.
You are encouraged to participate in our own parish discussions taking place via zoom on three Thursdays: 13th, 20th, 27th January at 8pm.
