Synod: deanery events in 2022 1st and 8th February - St Mary's, Bathgate (St Mary's deanery)
We are currently in a "a period of consultation and discernment" for the local church in which Pope Francis has asked for the voice of the laity to be heard. To help make this happen we are hosting two events in each deanery at the above-named hosting parishes.
The first event is a preparatory Holy Hour. It will start at 7:30pm.
The second event is the synodal meeting itself. It will start at 7:00pm.
In each deanery, every parish has been asked to send up to five delegates to its deanery-specific event. This will help to ensure adequate representation from across the deanery.
Delegates should attend both the Holy Hour and the synodal meeting.
There is no need to submit names or numbers in advance.
The meetings are open to all. So, as well as the ‘official’ delegates, all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
