News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool

Bible Society Xmas Online Ad 600 x 150 For Catholi Catholic Pic October 2018-1

By Father Philip Inch and Father Matthew Nunes, Synod Moderators.

The weekend of October 20th and 21st sees the first of our annual Synod Sundays.  This marks an important milestone on our journey to Synod 2020.

What to look out for:

• The Archbishop is writing a Pastoral Letter

• There will be a leaflet for everyone at Church giving you many details about the Synod

• There will be special prayers and liturgy ideas for each parish to use on that day.

The Synod Web site will go live that weekend: www.synod2020.co.uk

The Synod Office and the Synod Co-ordinator, Matt Jeziorski, can be contacted on 0151 486 1206.  Email: synod2020@rcaol.co.uk  Matt will be able to answer any questions about the Synod.

There is an invitation to a series of open meetings across the archdiocese so that anyone who wishes can learn about the Synod and about how everyone has a vital role to play.

These Open Meeting are:

Monday 29th October 7.30 pm – 9.00 pm at St Joseph’s, Penketh, WA5 2BB

Tuesday 30th October 7.30 pm – 9.00 pm at LACE, L17 1AA

Saturday 3rd November 10.00 am – 12 noon at St John’s Mill, Isle of Man

Wednesday 7th November 7.30 pm – 9.00 pm at Holy Rosary, Aintree, L10 2LG

Thursday 8th November 7.30 pm – 9.00 pm at St Mary’s, Leyland. PR25 1PD

There is no need to book for any of these open meetings, just come along.

The invitation to be part of Synod 2020 is made to each and every person in the Archdiocese of Liverpool.  At the heart of the Synod process is this truth:’“The Spirit of God is at work in the bishops, priests, deacons, religious and lay people of the Archdiocese.’  If we listen to the voice of the Spirit on our Synod journey then we will truly become the Church that God is calling us to be.

The Synod Sunday leaflet will also be going to every pupil in a Catholic School and College across the archdiocese.  This is so that all the families of our Church community can feel part of this exciting journey.  Please keep Synod 2020 in your prayers.
