The Board of Trustees have issued an invitation to all the Bishops of England and Wales to its National
Conference on 16th October. We recognised that in many cases, the diocese might wish to send a representative of the Bishop’s office. The Conference occurs at exactly the moment that dioceses will begin their individual synodal process and it was felt important that dioceses have the chance to hear about the process from our speakers.
Cardinal Nichols wrote to explain that the date of 16th October was when the Archdiocese of Westminster was launching its own synodal process. He sent his “prayers and best wishes” on the occasion of the National Conference.

Trustees Welcome New Groups 

The pandemic has had a devastating impact on so much of the Church’s  activity in the last eighteen months. The Sunday Obligation suspended, limits  at weddings and funerals, social distancing in church. The regularity of Mass  attendance and face-to-face meetings were lost.

Those in early adulthood share their hopes for the Church after lockdown, recognising Pope Francis’ call to contribute their gifts and energies to the Church.

This is the first of the Scottish Laity Network's programme on Synodality - Towards a Synodal Church. Our next session Synodality in Practice is with Brian Grogan.
