As you may already know Pope Francis launched a 2-year worldwide Synod process on 10th October 2021 entitled: For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission. He has invited everyone to take part in a dialogue of listening and speaking under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This begins at the local level in our parishes and diocese.
Between now and 28th February we are inviting as many people as possible to engage with this process. The feedback will be submitted to the Bishop’s Conference of England and Wales on Palm Sunday and this will then contribute to a national report. Eventually this, in turn, will contribute to reports which will be sent to the Vatican in 2023. The Pope and Bishops of the world will then meet in Synod to discuss their findings. This whole process is teaching us how to be a ‘synodal’ Church, a Church which discerns the Holy Spirit’s voice in and through the People of God.
As part of the Synodal journey we are inviting our school family to take part in this journey by completing the following survey.
