Approaches to the Synodal Pathway
- Catholic Bishops' Conference

 

listening

“As you know — it’s not a novelty — a synodal process is about to begin, a journey in which the whole Church is engaged around the theme: ‘For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission,’ three pillars. Three phases are foreseen, which will take place between October 2021 and October 2023. This itinerary was thought out as a dynamism of mutual listening. I want to stress this: a dynamism of mutual listening carried out at all levels of the Church, involving all the People of God. The Cardinal Vicar and the Auxiliary Bishops must listen to one another, the priests must listen to one another, the Religious must listen to one another, the laity must listen to one another and then, all inter-listening to one another; to listen to one another; to talk to one another and to listen to one another. It’s not about gathering opinions, no. This is not a survey, but about listening to the Holy Spirit.”

Pope Francis, Address to the Faithful of Rome, 18 September 2021

WELCOME TO OUR FIRST COMMUNION FAMILIES 
We have 18 families joining us today for the First Communion enrolment. The children will briefly introduce themselves at the beginning of mass after processing onto the sanctuary. We have reserved the first 6 benches at the front for them and will present them with a prayer bag after Holy Communion. Refreshments will be available in the Hardwick Room after mass. Children will start their preparation next Sunday at 9:45 am prompt in the Community Centre. 

CHAPEL FIRST COMMUNION
We have 6 families and I hope to meet with them and Gráinne McGuinness in the Presbytery on Saturday 5th February at 4:00 pm to discuss details and preparations. 

SYNODAL PATHWAY MEETINGS
Thanks to the 20 or so people who took part in the meeting last Sunday after mass. We distilled our 43 suggestions from the meeting on 24th Nov into 5 topics: Youth and Schools, Welcome, Sacraments and Liturgy, Outreach, and Care of Creation. The PPC is meeting again soon and will suggest some next steps. Our next Synodal meeting about proposals for the Parish Centre will be on Tuesday 15th Feb at 7:00 pm in the church. Please see the website for more details. 

BUXTON 100 CLUB RENEWALS
Over the past 2 years we have generated £2980.00 which we will use this year to improve our ‘back-of-house’ areas. Currently, 60 have renewed their membership either by standing order, cheque or cash. There are still quite a few outstanding subscriptions so please make your payments as soon as possible.  If people do not renew, and membership decreases, we will need to reduce the prizes awarded at the end of each month. Information and standing order forms are available at the back of the church. 

SECOND COLLECTION this weekend for the Sick and Retired Priests Fund.

NEXT SUNDAY
We shall be welcoming Alex Slade and Stacey Carr as they take their first formal steps into the Catholic Church. They have been meeting weekly with Margaret Swift and myself since last November and have decided to ask us to support them as they take this first step.
