Thanks to all! We have received a wealth of input for our synodal report – expressing a wide range of hopes and concerns. We are now processing those for a final synthesis, to submit to the synodal process for the end of May 2022.
“The synodal process is a time for speech. A time to let the voice of the Church
speak and bring forward the issues, the problems that inhabit
our synodal Church”.
(Cardinal Mario Grech, 23rd March ‘22)
ACI was invited, as a representative reform and renewal organisation, to contribute our synthesis of members’ and supporters’ views to the National Synod. We wish to listen and represent as many perspectives as possible. We ask you, therefore, to share this invitation so that our gathering reflects the spirit of the Synod as set out by Cardinal Grech:
“..no one – no matter their religious affiliation – should be excluded from sharing their perspective and experiences, insofar as they want to help the Church on her synodal journey of seeking what is good and true. This is especially true of those who are most vulnerable or marginalized.”
