Update: Synodal Pathway – Towards October 2024

Last December, Pope Francis asked bishops to renew their engagement with the faithful in preparation for the synodal assembly in Rome this October. In answering this call, clergy, representatives from across Diocesan parish groups, and John Paul II Youth Leaders met in Craigavon and Newry during February.

Through the 'Spiritual conversation' method, they considered the question: ‘How can we imagine the life of the Church in Ireland where people are co-responsible for the Church’s mission in different ways?’ Notetakers recorded the discussions, and the Diocesan Synodal Core Group carefully synthesised the insights. The resultant summary documents have now been submitted to the National Synodal team, signalling an important step forward in the journey towards the October assembly.
