Catholicism is experiencing a change of era like no other.

A revitalised narrative is needed to offer a fresh vision to the faithful still in the pews and rekindle what embers remain among those no longer engaged.The announcement of the Synod was widely welcomed with many Catholics working long hours to provide submissions that expressed their ‘joys and hopes, griefs and anxieties.’ We now look to the Synod to offer genuine renewal.

This webinar will focus on the state of play since the first Assembly and the lead up to the second Assembly in October 2024.We hope you can join us as we build this new way of being Church.
