The aim of the Synodal Process is to provide an opportunity for the entire People of God to discern together how to move forward towards being a more synodal Church in the long-term.  Pope Francis in October 2021, convened the whole Church in Synod.  Since that time there have been gatherings of the faithful at parish, national and continental levels.

 Copies of the Synod newsletter for  this Sunday are available near the church doors .
