Synod 2016 - Journeying and praying together in faith.


Prayer is a central part of our Diocesan Synod. During the week of the Synod, (April 3rd - 10th); we invite everyone to keep us in your prayers and, where possible, to join us at liturgies being celebrated in parishes, pastoral areas and diocese.

We have offered parishes information on the music for these liturgies so that choir members and others can prepare and fully participate – particularly in the opening and closing liturgies for Synod2016!

Everyone is invited to pray for our Diocesan Synod. All are invited to these special liturgies:
  • Opening Mass with Bishop Brendan in St John’s Cathedral. Sunday, April 3rd at 7pm
  • Prayers in Parish:   Every parish (via their parish priest) will receive a prayer pack in Easter week with prayer resources for use at daily Masses Monday - Thursday 4/5/6/7th, and for Sunday 10th
  • Pastoral Area Prayer Service:  Wednesday, April 6th. (details below)
  • Closing Mass with Bishop Brendan in St John’s Cathedral. Sunday, April 10th at 7pm
The Pastoral Area Prayer on Wed April 6th will be led by prayer guides, in local locations. Everyone is welcome and there will be special prayers for delegates and for the diocese.
