OPENING OF THE WORLD SYNOD: Today Pope Francis will inaugurate a period of consultation and preparation for the World Synod on Synodality which will take place in Rome in 2023. Our Diocesan reflection and consultation will begin on 17 October and it has  been suggested that this coming week should be a time of Spiritual Preparation with a theme for us to pray and reflect on each day. This will be posted on our Website and the Parish Facebook page and I would encourage all of you to take part asking for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We will reflect and pray about each theme at Mass each day this week.
