The responses “will be used in a report that will be sent to the Vatican” ahead of the synod, which is scheduled for October 2018. The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/cathnews-synod-youth-poll. Closing date for replies – 30th June.

This was the birth of SPICMA, which is now supporting communities, individuals and the Church throughout much of the developing world. There will be a Jubilee Mass of Celebration on Saturday 22nd July, 12noon at The Immaculate Conception, Farm Street. Fr Bernard will be concelebrating Mass.
