As part of the worldwide consultation ahead of the 16th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October 2023, the Diocese of Westminster has been taking part in a synodal pathway, which began with a time for listening in parishes, schools and other communities. The discussions centred around: A synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, 'journeys together'. How is this 'journeying together' happening today in your local Church? What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our 'journeying together'? 

Alongside the summary findings, the Cardinal's reflection and homily from the pre-synodal diocesan meeting that took place in February 2022, you will find the final Bishops' Report which has ben submitted to the Bishops' Conference, and the National Synthesis which will be submitted to the Vatican.
