Pope Francis and the Synod office in Rome are inviting the whole Church to become Synodal.
We are invited to journey together, listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in the lives of the people we meet.
The whole ‘Synod’ will be a two-year process beginning in every diocese in October 2021 and moving on to a national then international listening exercise.
The Synod prayer, Preparatory document and the Synod Vademecum provide us with an in depth understanding of what the synod entails.
Information sessions to help us with understanding the process in Clifton have taken place with parish representatives . There will now a time of preparation and – in January – we start discussion groups on a variety of topics associated with our faith and parish life.
Please see the Advent newsletters for questions we are asked to consider, ahead of the talk set for January. Full information at the Clifton website.
