Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ – There are still a few times throughout the day that we have no one present – can you spare an hour. There is a book to be signed at the back of the Church and this is solely to let us know the times that needs to be covered. Please let Mary or Anne in the office, know if you think you can spare an hour!
The Synod on Synodality takes place from 4 – 29 October in Rome, on the theme: ‘For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission’. The aim of the Synodal Process is to provide an opportunity for the entire People of God to discern together how to move forward towards being a more synodal Church in the long-term. Much of the material from our listening sessions in Clogher Diocese since 2020 has found its way into the reports of the future synodal pathway here in Ireland. Ireland is represented by Bishops Alan McGuckian SJ (Raphoe) and Brendan Leahy (Limerick). This Synod will also have religious as well as lay women and men participating. In light of Pope Francis’ comment that ‘without prayer there will be no Synod’, we are all encouraged to unceasingly pray to God over the coming weeks for Pope Francis and for all members of the Synodal Assembly.
