Synod 2021 -2023

Synodal Pathway

Synod 2021a

In these days, the Catholic Church throughout the world and in Ireland is beginning a series of conversations about what God wants of his people at this time. These conversations are often referred to as a Synodal Process. “Synodal” comes from a Greek word which means “walking together”.

Pope Francis is inviting us to “to journey together” as Church and has opened the Universal Synod in Rome on 9th October 2021.

In Dromore Diocese on Saturday 16th October 2021, Archbishop Eamon Martin will celebrate the 6.00pm Vigil Mass in Newry Cathedral. It will commence the liturgical journey of the Diocese for the Synod. Archbishop Martin has formed a Synod Core Group in Dromore Diocese to lead our parishes in this work. Over the coming weeks and months you will be hearing more about how you can be involved in the Diocesan Synodal Pathway.

We pray that the time ahead will be a time of prayer, listening and discernment, involving a consultative conversation. This will allow all people - both within the Church and in society at large, to share their insights into the Catholic Church in Ireland – past, present and future – so that we can prepare for both the Universal Synod in Rome and the National Synodal Assembly.

Adsumus Sancte Spiritus (The Synod Prayer)

We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.

With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.

We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity so that we may

journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.

All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever. Amen.

Attributed to St. Isidore of Seville (506-636)
