SYNOD OF BISHOPS
A consultation paper from the Synod of Bishops, regarding the meeting of the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops due to be held in Rome, 5th-19th October 2014 on the theme Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelisation.
The Secretariat has asked that the Document be shared immediately as widely as possible to deaneries and parishes so that input from local sources can be received regarding the themes and responses to the questionnaire, as well as any helpful statistics, for the preparation of the Instrumentum laboris. If you call into the Parish Office you can get a copy of it. In early December we will have a gathering to discuss together what thoughts we can feedback in preparation for this meeting.
