Synod Prayer

Father, we thank you for the love you have shown us in the gift of Jesus, your Son. We thank you for the gift of the Church, through which you show us that you are always with us and are always at work in our lives.


As we journey together to Synod 2020 help us to become the Church that you are calling us to be. May your Holy Spirit be powerfully at work among us. Strengthen each of us and guide Francis, our Pope and Malcolm our Archbishop.


Help us to respond to the challenges of our times in new ways to bring your love to all our sisters and brothers. We make this prayer through Jesus Christ Our Lord.


St Marie’s and St Patrick’s

 Synod 2020 is your chance to be involved in the future of the church!



We have begun the next stage of our Synod journey together.  After the listening events, and more than 20,000 responses from across the Archdiocese, four themes have been discerned:

1. All called and gifted by God

2. Sharing the mission of Jesus

3. How we pray together

4. Building community, nurturing belonging

We will reflect on these themes over the next months and discern what proposals we  want to put forward to the Synod.

Please look at the Synod 2020 website: and the resources there.  There you can also look at the report on the listening process and  how the themes were arrived at.
