What is this all about?

Synod of Bishops Logo

Pope Francis has issued an invitation to every member of the Church to participate in a worldwide conversation about what it means to belong to the Church (communion), how we can play our part in the life of the Church (participation) and what we are called to do to strenghten the life and activity of the Church (mission). He has asked that this conversation should happen in every Diocese in the world.

Groups who are interested in contributing to the conversation by holding a listening session or a focus group to discuss the questions raised by Pope Francis are invited to contact the Diocese’s Synodal Pathway Team.
