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 are to be held in early November. These will be followed by parish meetings with specific areas for reflection during the season of Advent.
The process has started with representatives from our parish receiving an introductory talk on line from Sarah Adams. Resources are expected to arrive at St Thomas More soon so that we can come together to talk together, listen to one another and pray.
Please continue to look at the Clifton Diocese website for updates.
