Bishop Nulty, the Diocesan Administrator, launched the local synodal process in St Mary’s Cathedral on October 17th at the 5.30pm mass. This Synodal Process coincides with the start of the two-year Synodal Pathway for the Catholic Church in Ireland which will lead, in time, to a National Synodal Assembly in Ireland. The next two years will be a time of prayer, listening and discernment, involving a consultative conversation. This will allow all people both within the Church and in society at large, to share their insights into a Catholic Church in Ireland – past, present, and future – so that we can prepare for a National Synodal Assembly in the coming years.
