SYNOD 2018

IN OCTOBER 2018, YOUNG PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD WILL BE THE CENTRE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S ATTENTION!

POPE FRANCIS HAS ANNOUNCED THAT A SYNOD WILL TAKE PLACE IN ROME WITH THE THEME,

YOUTH, FAITH AND VOCATION


A SYNOD IS A CONVERSATION BETWEEN CLERGY IN THE CHURCH AND FOR THIS SYNOD THERE WILL BE CARDINALS, BISHOPS, PRIESTS AND LAITY TOGETHER.

WITHIN THE DIOCESE OF NORTHAMPTON YOUTH MINISTRY OFFICE, WE WILL BE ENCOURAGING PARISHES, PASTORAL AREAS AND OUR OWN BISHOP TO SEEK OUT WAYS OF LISTENING TO YOUNG PEOPLE; THEIR NEEDS, DESIRES, FAITH, STRUGGLES AND JOYS.

WE WILL ALSO ENCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE TO SEARCH FOR WHERE AND WHAT GOD IS CALLING THEM TO.


AN EXCELLENT PREPARATORY DOCUMENT CAN BE FOUND HERE 

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE SO IMPORTANT TO OUR CHURCH AND THIS IS GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH THEM AS OUR FOCUS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE SYNOD AND WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN BE INVOLVED PLEASE CONTACT US AT NYMO.
