SYNOD PREPARATIONS, ST FRANCES OF ROME

(updated 11/4/22)

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

We have now finished putting together what can be described as the full dossier on our Parish Synod Initiative. As we have said before, in addition to the discussions at the three meetings we held, we also received a large number of extra contributions, thoughts and opinions delivered via email, the box in the church and verbally which were most valuable in completing the Diocesan Report.

We feel that everyone should have access to this. You will find a black folder in the Parish Room containing the additional material in its unedited form. The only action we have taken has been to render the documents anonymous.

Do take the opportunity to read at least some of the contributions. In common with the whole experience we have been through over the past couple of months, you will find them often prayerful, sometimes emotional but invariably deeply committed to the faith we all share.
