Content Editor Pope Francis is passionate about shaping ‘a more synodal church’ - that is, a Church which involves more consultation and discernment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. As a major step in this direction he has postponed the next gathering of the worldwide Synod of Bishops until 2023 to enable a world-wide consultation to which every member of the Church is invited to contribute. Here in our parish we will follow the Australian model of having three distinct consultations, in December and in February. For background information go to: https://www.catholic.org.au/synodalchurch (you can also make individual submissions) For the first consultation our parish will have two options: ¨THIS Thursday 9th December 7:30pm (please note that this is a change from the previously advertised date of Tuesday 7th) ¨Saturday 11th December 4:00pm They will take place on ZOOM to make it easier for people to take part and will go for no longer than an hour and a quarter.
