Why do we need a Synod - Dr Gerry O'Hanlon


‘Why we need a Synod’ Dr. Gerry O’Hanlon SJ.
Dr. Gerry O’Hanlon SJ is a staff member of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice and author of the recent A New Vision for the Catholic Church: A view from Ireland.

“I would suggest that firstly we need to locate all our planning in the context of prayerful discernment … I would propose that one major strategic action would involve a series of national assemblies or synods of the Irish Church, building on parish and diocesan assemblies, with adequate representation of all the faithful, including those on the margins and those who have already left the Church.” Gerry O’Hanlon in Reaping the Harvest
