SYNOD 2020 STATUS UPDATE AND CALL TO ARMS

SYNOD 2020 STATUS UPDATE AND CALL TO ARMS

Dear parishioner

As you are aware, the Covid-19 Pandemic has had a terrible impact on everyone's lives. Many of us have lost loved ones, friends and relatives. As the year draws to a close, we see light and hope at the end of the tunnel, around us we see the young shoots of optimism, indeed in many cases our collective thoughts are beginning to think of a future filled with normality. That normality includes our respective journeys in faith.

Following a postponement of the SYNOD activities for almost six months, we as a community are being given the opportunity to think about our church. Next June, the Liverpool Archdiocesan Synod will meet to vote on the proposals and affirmations that will help us become ‘the church we are called to be’.

DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A SAY IN THE SHAPE OF THE FUTURE OF THE CHURCH IN LIVERPOOL? OTHERS ARE HAVING THEIRS!

As the Synod representative I am reaching out to everyone in our community to think about, and if motivated to do so, contribute to the selection of the affirmations and proposals that will form the foundation and agenda of the Synod. This is essentially our last opportunity to make our voices heard.

The published affirmations and proposals are the fruit of contributions made by people from across the Archdiocese, including our own parish. Our role as Synod members is to listen to the views and hopes of the parish as to which of the 120 proposals and 40 affirmations will help us become ‘the church we are called to be’.

BUT WHAT ARE WE ASKING YOU TO DO?

Rather than asking you to tackle all the proposals and affirmations at once, we have broken them down into themes. These have been captured in a set of 7 surveys - any and all responses to which will be distilled into our parish response which must be returned by the 4th December.

To allow us to meet this deadline you have between now and Dec 1st to respond.  You may work through each survey or just choose themes you feel particularly strongly about.

Each survey will take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

To read and complete a survey, simply click on the link next to the theme below, answer the questions and then click ‘submit’ at the end.

If you know other people who want to contribute please forward this letter. Paper copies of the survey are available for anyone who doesn't have a computer. please contact Andy Finch at for details.

We look forward to hearing your views
