SYNOD 2020 Process overview:

  • Oct 2017 – Sept 2018 – time of prayer.
  • 2018 – Sept 2019 - time of listening and discernment.
  • Oct 2019 – Oct 2020 – themes to be developed into proposals to be voted on at the Synod in October 2020.

SYNOD Membership:

Each priest in active ministry will be a member and each parish will elect a SYNOD member. Our SYNOD member is Andy Finch

Each Pastoral Area will have and additional 8 members. All in all, the SYNOD will have 500 members with voting rights.

Members will be trained in discernment and go back to their parishes to listen to the concerns, needs, and reflections of their local community. From these conversations around the diocese, the themes of the Synod will emerge and Members will take these back to their local community where they will begin to be formulated into the concrete proposals that the Synod will vote upon.

The Pastoral Development Group have been looking at a Parish Synod member, a parish Synod Group and Pastoral Area Synod members. Please keep all this in your prayers.

Reconciliation Service Time Change

PLEASE NOTE: RECONCILIATION SERVICE ON TUESDAY IS NOW AT 7.00PM: My apologies for having to change the time at such short notice, but Fr Andrew and I have to attend a Provincial Council meeting in London the next day and need to catch the last train from Lime Street! The Reconciliation Service at St Mary’s is on Monday at the usual time of 7.30pm.

Sent to Proclaim the Gospel

A new book by Fr Jim McManus, C.SsR. I read this on my free day last week and it is a little gem of a book, offering all of us, but especially the laity, practical insights into how we are all called to share the mission of the Church. I highly recommend it, especially in the light of the forthcoming Synod. It is published by Redemptorist Publications and retails at £12.95, but if there are enough wanting copies, I am sure we can do a deal with RP.

Please let Hayley in the office know if you want us to order a copy for you.
