A two-year 'synodal' process is taking place in the Catholic Church from October 2021 that culminates in the final Synod Gathering of Bishops in Rome in October 2023. The overall theme is "For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission".
On 20 November there was a gathering in Bristol to launch this process in our Diocese. All parishes in the Diocese were invited and we sent a delegation as our representatives from all three of our churches. The speakers were Bishop Declan Lang, Fr Jan Nowotnik (Director of Mission and National Ecumenical Officer at Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales) ans Sarah Adams (Adult education and evangelisation department). The videos are below.
