SYNOD 2023 – Responses
Pope Francis has invited All Catholics to express their dreams, ideas and concerns in preparation for the Synod of Bishops in 2023. The pope's invitation to discern a path forward for the church stems from his belief that the Holy Spirit inspires all members to be missionary disciples, sharing core Christian beliefs by going out to the world. The diocese wants to hear your views, and a consultation document with questions that may help direct your response can be found on www.rcdop.org.uk. All responses to Synod23@rcdop.org.uk before 8th April 2022. All responses will be acknowledged. The Parish Council will also discuss the Consultation Document.
