Synod of the Church

posted in: News, Parish | 0

We continue to pray for the work of the Synod of Bishops which has been taking place in Rome.

We remind ourselves that the work of the Synod is a journey we have all been – and continue to be – invited to take part in : we are very much the Church Universal, from our Parish participation, in communion with parish communities worldwide, to those involved in the events taking place at the Vatican.

In calling the Synod, Pope Francis has invited us to walk together in the spirit of the Synod : for a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission. It is an historic moment in the life of the Church, not least in the involvement of non-Bishop voting members for the first time.
