RESPONDING TO THE SYNOD PROCESS
You will recall that last autumn we launched an initiative by Fr Michael Henesy to try and engage those who do not come to church to share their insights with us, thereby making a unique contribution to the Synod process of consultation. Father Michael has presented the results in a report that has been forwarded to the Synod Office.

Find our ‘living water’
Jesus’ message to the woman at the well reminds us of His first miracle at Cana where He changed water into wine. Today, He promises us “living water where we will never be thirsty again…a spring inside…welling up to eternal life”. When His grace is poured into us, into our marriages, it can overflow, strengthening us, reaching out to others
