The worldwide church is embarking on a two-year process culminating in a follow up Synod in 2023.
The Synodal Pathway − Parish Discussions
Pope Francis asked for this worldwide listening exercise to prepare for a Synod of Bishops in Rome in 2023. We were invited to gather as a parish in small group meetings to discuss some key questions with each other. Thank you to all of the individuals and groups who took part in this process between January and March of 2022. The responses have been summarised and forwarded to the Synod in Rome and to our own diocese. We also identified action areas for our Parish, as part of a pastoral plan of renewal.
