“Enlarge the space of your tent” (Isaiah 54:2)
Synod 2021 - 2024

After 3 years of listening and journeying together, we're now looking towards October 2024 when the next session of the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will take place. To that end, parishes in the diocese have been encouraged to reflect on how we are tackling the renewal of our sense of mission, in the context of building up communion and widening participation.

The Letter from Bishop Nicholas and Parish Gatherings One and Two outline how parishes have been invited to do this, and the Westminster Diocesan Report of the Process, ‘Open Doors. Open Hearts’, is the fruit of the journey so far.

We are invited, in collaboration with the World Pope's Prayer Network, to join in praying for the synod every first Monday of the month. Find out more here: https://www.prayforthesynod.va/en/
