synod 2020 logoSYNOD PRAYER

Father, we thank you for the love you have shown us in the gift of Jesus, your Son. We thank you for the gift of the Church, through which you show us that you are always with us and are always at work in our lives.

As we journey together to Synod 2020 help us to become the Church that you are calling us to be. May your Holy Spirit be powerfully at work among us. Strengthen each of us and guide Francis, our Pope and Malcolm, our Archbishop.

Help us to respond to the challenges of our times in new ways to bring your love to all our sisters and brothers. We make this prayer through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

AMEN

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.
