‘catholic conversations’ – Belfast – Thursday 5th Nov 201529/10/2015
Please note, there will be no invited speaker or formal input other than maybe a brief introduction. Those attending are invited to share on questions such as:-
– What do we know about the Synod?
– What do we think of it’s process and outcome?
– What, if anything, did the Synod achieve?
So feel free to come as you are, with nothing more than what you know and what you think. As the advert goes, it is what it says on the tin – a conversation. Everyone welcome.
‘catholic conversations‘ supports reform and renewal in the Catholic Church but allows for other topics to be explored and is open to everyone.

“Dialogue, dialogue, dialogue. It is the only way for individuals, families and societies to grow, the only way for the life of peoples to progress, along with the culture of encounter, a culture in which all have something good to give and all can receive something good in return. Others always have something to give me, if we know how to approach them in a spirit of openness and without prejudice. I call this attitude of openness and availability without prejudice, ‘social humility’, and it is this that favours dialogue. Only in this way can understanding grow between cultures and religions, mutual esteem without needless preconceptions, respectful of the rights of everyone. Today, either we stand together with the culture of dialogue and encounter, or we all loose, we all loose; from here we can take the right road that makes the journey fruitful and secure.” (Pope Francis, July 2015).
