On the 10th October 2021 Pope Francis launched a two year synodal path with a call for us to ‘encounter, listen, and discern’. Pope Francis invites the entire Church to reflect on a theme that is decisive for its life and mission. Our “journeying together” is, in fact, what most effectively enacts and manifests the nature of the Church as the pilgrim and missionary People of God. Below is a short video about the Synod what it is, what it is about and how you can become involved. Please click on video below.
