This week’s message from the synod office looks at what is happening in schools and colleges around the world. We highlight one example below, but you can find more by following the link above.
As part of the local synodal process, the Diocese of Palmerston North in New Zealand has developed a series of resources for school communities. The coordination group welcomes the participation of children and young people.
Prayer for the meeting of the synod’s commissions in Rome
Let us keep in mind in our personal and community prayer next week's meeting of the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops with the members of the four synod’s commissions in Rome. Enlighten, O Lord, the hearts of the participants, who represent the diversity and richness of the Church. Dispose their minds to listen to the Spirit of truth so that their work and their reflections may best serve Your Church. Let them discover how to transmit in the best way the experience of being a listening Church and promote the participation of God's people. On this journey, to which we are all called to be enthused by the fire of the Spirit that gives the necessary gifts at the right time, we want to open ourselves, together with Mary to the newness of a life of faith which is built in communion on the paths of love and hope. AMEN
