Synod - Towards October 2024

Between the XVI Assembly of October 2023 and the XVI Assembly planned for October 2024, the local Churches and the groupings of Churches are invited to contribute by deepening aspects of the Synthesis Report that are fundamental to the Synod's theme.

In Ireland, each diocese is asked to provide a response to the following question: How can we imagine the life of the Church in Ireland where people are co-responsible for the Church's mission in different ways?

In February and March 2024, the Diocese of Derry held two regional Synodal Listening Days in Galliagh, Derry City and Omagh, Co Tyrone. Aware that the voice of young people was somewhat absent from these gatherings, two further events were organised by the Diocesan Youth Ministry team.

On review of the submissions received at the end of the listening sessions, the following is a synthesis of comments, considerations, concerns and possibilities. The report can be viewed here

This will be part of the Irish response for the next stage of the Universal Synod.
