SYNOD 2020 Process:
Oct 2017 – Sept 2018 – a time of prayer.
Oct 2018 – Sept 2019 - a time of listening and discernment.
Oct 2019 – Oct 2020 – themes to be developed into proposals to be voted on at the Synod in October 2020.
Each priest in active ministry will be a member and each parish will elect a synod member. Each Pastoral Area will have 8 members. All in all, the Synod will have 500 members with voting rights. Members will be trained in discernment and go back to their parishes to listen to the concerns, needs, and reflections of their local community. From these conversations around the diocese, the themes of the Synod will emerge and Members will take these back to their local community where they will begin to be formulated into the concrete proposals that the Synod will vote upon in 2020. The Pastoral Development Group have been looking at a Parish Synod member, a parish Synod Group and Pastoral Area Synod members. Please keep all this in your prayers.

Animate… Inspiring Life and Soul
Animate is the Youth Service of the Archdiocese of Liverpool and was set up as a response to people in the Diocese naming Youth Ministry as one of their top 3 priorities to be addressed.
