The Synodal Process

The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has asked the entire Church to be involved in a Synodal process which involves listening, conversation and discernment to aim at our common Mission of sharing the joy of the Gospel with the world. The synod therefore is a conversation throughout the entire Church to understand the challenges that the modern world faces, so that together we all may work more effectively to bring Christ to a society that is so badly in need of Him.

Luke & Abi have helped coordinate the responses from the Chaplaincy and Luke has largely compiled our report which may be found below alongside the report from the Archdiocese.

The Prayer of the Synod: Adsumus Sancte Spiritus

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,

as we gather together in Your name.

With You alone to guide us,

make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go

and how we are to pursue it.

We are weak and sinful;

do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity

so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth

and what is right.

All this we ask of You,

who are at work in every place and time,

in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever. Amen.
