On Tuesday 9th July, St Mary's hosted their annual social and prayer evening led by the RE Ambassadors. This year the focus was placed upon the upcoming SYNOD, which is happening in the Liverpool Archdiocese in 2020.
It was an evening to celebrate what we have done in our local parishes and wider community this year and to also come together in prayer and discussion – reflecting on the SYNOD 2020 questions based around moving the church forward. The young people had some great discussion points and each of their opinions were valuable and will be taken back to the Archbishop, collaborated with other SYNOD events before being taken to Rome.
It was lovely to hear all the positive things the young people value about being a member of the Catholic Church with proactive ways we can all move forward as an inclusive, loving and welcoming community.
