LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
Father Roy Cooper, Parish Priest of St Mary Magdalen's and St Teresa’s, Penwortham, Patricia Wilson Synod member and John Topping Synod support member, are preparing to fly the flag celebrating Synod 2020.
In preparation for the Synod on 19 June when recommendations will be voted on, parishioners are attending six discernment workshops in which the 19 recommendations across the broad range of topics including evangelisation, spiritual formation, governance and synodality, property, and the place of the Church in today’s world, can be discussed and subsequently proposals submitted.
Patricia commented that ‘If our group is anything to go by, the Synod process has brought us together, it has developed our faith, and we’re talking in a way that we wouldn’t have done before. I hope that’s what comes from the whole process, that we meet the needs – emotional, psychological, and religious needs – of our people, everything else will come after that’.
