SYNOD 2020

synod 2020 logoThe collated parish SYNOD responses have been submitted to the Archdiocese. Thank you to all those who submitted responses.

Hope University is analysing all the data for the SYNOD working party.  The working party comprises  the SYNOD Moderators (Fr Philip Inch, Fr Matthew Nunes), Mrs Maureen Knight, (Pastoral Formation) Mrs Debbie Reynolds (SFX pastoral worker), Sr Rachel Duffy FCJ, (religious) Miss Kate Wilkinson (school chaplain), Fr Mark Beattie, Fr Stephen Pritchard and Fr Dominic Curran (Parish Priests).

The working party will meet from the 15th-17th August under the guidance of Fr Eamonn from the Limerick Diocese. Fr Peter McGrail will present the data from the listening process and after a period of discernment, it is hoped themes will emerge which will indicate the way forward.  

The SYNOD members will be presented with the these at the September SYNOD 2020 gatherings, and presented to the Archdiocese in October on ‘SYNOD Sunday’.  There will then be a further listening process.

 It is asked that we pray for the SYNOD journey and especially for the meeting of the working party that takes places between the 15th to 17th August.
