Prayers as we discern our Synod Themes

Friday the 9th of August

A very important stage in our Synod Journey takes place between 15th and 17th August when the Synod Working Party gather under the guidance of Fr Eamonn Fitzgibbon and Dr Jessie Rogers (Limerick Diocese) who will lead a three day process of discernment and prayer. Fr Peter McGrail will present the data from our listening at this gathering and we hope that our discernment will lead to a number of Themes emerging which indicate the way forward for us on our Synod Journey. Fr Philip's article in the latest Pic gives a full overview of these next steps.

Prayer is vitally important at this time and we ask that the whole archdiocese holds the Synod in prayer, particularly during 15, 16, and 17 August.

We have produced two sets of bidding prayers which we invite parishes to use - one for Sunday 11 August and the other for the Solemnity of the Assumption on Thursday 15 August. Click here to download.
