What is a Synod? What is the purpose?
“A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church.” The purpose is “to discern and establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.”
Come Holy SpiritMake our ears to hearMake our eyes to seeMake our mouths to speakMake our hearts to seekMake our hands to reach outAnd touch the world with your love.AMEN.Mary, Mother of the Church,Pray for us.
