Participating in the Synod on Synodality in the Diocese of Motherwell: As well as praying for the success of the Synod throughout the month of October in parishes and communities, we will do so as a Diocese, led by Bishop Toal, at a special gathering for prayer and reflection on Thursday 19th October between 7 and 9pm in the Xavier Centre, Carfin. Delegates from each parish are invited, but anyone else who would like to attend is most welcome. Parishes are asked to nominate 3 or 4 representatives. At this gathering, time will be spent in prayer followed by discussion and discernment on the three questions presented in the Working Document for the Synod. These questions are: 1 How can we be more fully a sign and instrument of God and of the unity of all mankind? 2 How can we better share gifts and tasks in the service of the Gospel? 3 What processes, structures and institutions are needed in a Missionary Synodal Church?
Letter from the Bishop: A slightly shortened version of Bishop Toal’s pastoral letter on Synodality will be read at Sunday masses this weekend. The complete version will be posted on the parish website.
October, the month of the Missions: There will be a special collection over the weekend of 21st to the 22nd of October.
