SYNOD 2021 – 23
Parish Process November 2021
All parishioners are warmly encouraged to engage in the synodal process as described in last week’s newsletter.
Pope Francis is encouraging us all to speak up, listen and pray about how we engage with Jesus, The Church and our Parish.
For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
· If you are unable to join any of the meetings, you can submit your own response at email@example.com
If you would like to read more about the process before the meetings, please go to https://aec.rcaos.org.uk/synod
Members of your parish synod team are Alex Faircloth, Kathy Ball, Matthew David, Pauline Hall and Trisha Higgins.
Two delegates from this team will give feedback from our parish meetings at the next stage of the process.
Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! (Matt 11:15). Pope Francis has initiated a listening process for discussion in 2023. Holy Cross has already contributed to this. We need now to discuss the feedback the Diocese received from all the parishes. More importantly we should meet to help fulfil this listening process at ‘home’ in Holy Cross. Summaries of responses from the listening phase can be found on the website.
Journey in Faith (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults): Journey in Faith is the process by which adults can prepare to be received into the Catholic Church. It aims to help people deepen their knowledge of Jesus and their relationship with Him. Weekly sessions take people through the key teachings of the Catholic Church and look at the issues facing Catholics in today’s world. We look in detail at the sacraments and prepare those who decide to become Catholics to receive the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil. Other parishioners who would like to join us and perhaps refresh their own faith are also very welcome. If you are interested and would like to find out more please contact the RCIA Team via the contact form on the parish website.
