We have our regular reflection on this weeks gospel as well as other liturgical odds and ends.

Synod Update
On 15th October the delegates gathered to review the pastoral plan coming out of the synod and the action plans arising from that.

Next Wednesday 19th 2016 chairpersons of Parish Pastoral Councils and Parish Priests will be briefed on the upcoming two year goals. Each parish, pastoral area and the diocese will take on new goal every two years building towards 2025.  
It is a time of challenge and opportunity for us all in the diocese where each parish will work out how to enact the plans and actions as mandated by the Synod given the realities which are possible for each parish.

You can listen to the interview with Noirin excerpted from the main programme HERE.
 
Gospel - Luke 18:1-8
 
Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Grant me justice against my opponent.’ For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.’” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
