What’s Next

As the Renewal’s Working Teams progress we will be updating you with their progress, recommendations and vision as we embrace change to create a new vision for the Diocese.

Our Renewal is an expression of the synodality that Pope Francis has identified as a key dimension of the Church’s life in the third millennium. Synodality is the way of being a pilgrim Church, a Church that journeys together and listens together.  As Pope Francis has noted synodality is “an easy concept to put into words, but not so easy to put into practice”. Embedding these practices of listening and discernment will re-shape our engagement with the world, our evangelising mission and our works of service in a rapidly changing environment” (Concluding Statement – A Final Word from the Second Assembly)

‘The joy of love experienced by families is also the joy of the Church.’

Pope Francis
