Synod Pathway 2022
In Luke 5:1-11, the Gospel writer creatively combines the preaching of Jesus, a miracle and a call story. Luke invites us to recognise our own attraction to Jesus and the Good News. In the context of the Synodal Pathways — certain expressions jump off the page: the word of God, put out into the deep, do not be afraid
We should not be afraid to put our out into the deep, both personally and as a community of faith. We pray to the Holy Spirit, that the Christian community may be full of courage as it gathers together on the Synodal Pathway. Synodal Resources are available at Synodal Resources | Archdiocese of Dublin (dublindiocese.ie).
The entire Catholic Church has begun a series of conversations in parishes to discern what God wants of his people. This is called the “Synodal Process”. Synod (Greek) means “walking together” it also means “meeting”. This will culminate with the Synod of Bishops with Pope Francis in Rome in October 2023. The process will allow all the baptised people in the whole Church to share their experiences of the Church towards preparation for a National Synod in the coming year. The Parish Pastoral Parish Council met last Tuesday 1 February and decided to hold a series of parish meetings in March to prepare for the Synodal Pathway. Let us continue in prayer for the success of this process. Parishioners will be informed of the dates of these meetings.
Please take a copy of the prayer for the Synod home and recite it when opportune.
A word of thanks is due to all who so generously contributed towards the cost of repair of the Church central heating.
