Synod implementation training takes place at St Anthony’s, Langa, on Saturday, 12 February 2022
Two members from each parish (perhaps the parish priest/ parish administrator himself and a parish synod coordinator, or a PPC chairperson and a parish synod coordinator) are asked to attend this training. All deacons of the archdiocese are invited over and above those already mentioned.
Apart from being guided through an actual synod discussion process, suggestions for the training of group facilitators and scribes in parishes will be given and material will be distributed.
The intention is that the parish synod coordinator will direct the parish process logistically, arrange training of facilitators and scribes, and be the visible face of the process in the parish.
The theme will focus on one main question: A synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, “journeys together.” How is this “journeying together” happening today in your local Church? What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our journeying together”?” (Vademecum 5.3 and also in Preparation Document, 26)
The day starts with registration at 08:30 and will conclude at 12:00. Please use the following link to register by 7 February for the synod implementation training on 12 February 2022:
