Synodal Church

As part of the worldwide consultation ahead of the 16th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October 2023, the Diocese of Westminster launched the first stages of its Synodal Path with a liturgy at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday 16th October 2021. This was followed by a time for listening which will take place in our parishes during November and the first part of Advent.

 A synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, 'journeys together'.
The main questions the preparatory document suggests for discussion are:
How is this 'journeying together' happening today in your local Church? What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our 'journeying together'? 

 

The pre-Advent time of listening with be followed by a presentation of what has been heard at a pre-synodal diocesan meeting in the Cathedral and Cathedral Hall on 15th January.
