Game On! Back with Fr. Rob and loving it. I always enjoy our conversations, and the encouragement for the mission.
This is Take Seven, in our video series.
Today we discussed the Super Bowl, and the Rams winning. However, we focused on all things Synod currently happening in the Church, and in our parishes. The goal is not to provide a report, though we will do that too.
This week’s Pastoral Day had many parish leaders, laity and clergy, discuss best practices on our quarterly gatherings. We also discussed best practices involving the current Synod process. His Grace mentioned that he is looking forward to the parishes’ feedback, which will help him plan ministry in the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. How will our sharing shape the next few years?
The same process applies to us at St. Finnan’s Basilica and our North Glengarry Parishes. In the following weeks there will be many different small groups that you’ll be able to join. I invite you to participate, to share and listen to each other about our experiences of being Church together. Let’s continue dreaming together.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also stay tuned to the Nota Bene for all upcoming dates and invitation on how to participate in the Synod.
Have a great week. Peace.
