Adult Formation

Welcome to our Adult Formation Page Online

In October 2021 Pope Francis launched the Synod on Synodality. This was to be the Synod like no other. The Holy Father invited every parish in every diocese around the world to participate. He said that he wanted everyone to be involved. In our diocese we put in place training and formation to help make sure that as many people as possible could say their piece during the period of Parish Consultations at the end of which we, like every other diocese had to write a synthesis of all the feedback from our parish groups which was then submitted to the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales along with the syntheses of other diocese who then produced a further synthesis and submitted that to the Synod secretariat in Rome which produced a working document to be used during the General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October 2023. The next stage of the Synod is in October 2024.

Our Diocesan Synthesis is available:

The Synod is a continuing process calling us to journey together in our faith. More information can be found here:
