Synod 2016: If you haven’t answered the Synod questions you might do so in the coming weeks as the delegates have to have the answers into the Diocesan office before the end of May. Many thanks to the people who have put replies in the box allocated at the back of the Church and to the people who organised meetings with the delegates, but we would like to get some more feedback from the Parishioners. Now is the time to have your say in how you want the Diocese of Limerick run in the next ten years. All the delegates are available to not your opinions and relay them back to the Diocesan Office. Please encourage people to do the survey online at especially those who done come to church. The three questions are repeated below:

1. What are the most important religious/social issues facing the Diocese of Limerick. What are the issues you would like to see on the agenda of the synod in 2016.

2. Where do we experience love, truth, goodness, hope, joy. Where do we see God at work, the spirit active, the Kingdom of God breaking in.

3. What can be done to be inclusive of those who don’t feel connected to the faith community, why do you continue to participate or why do you not continue to participate.

Remember this is a listening process, whatever your opinion is, it counts, there is no one judging your opinion.
