Bishops' Plenary Meeting - November 2014

Hinsley Hall, Diocese of Leeds

Family Synod

In response to the invitation of Pope Francis, the Bishops’ Conference agrees the following in preparation for the Synod of Bishops in October 2015:

  • A period of spiritual reflection in parishes on the themes of the vocation, journey and mission of the family, inviting a response to specific points of reflection to be gathered in each diocese. These materials will be ready for use after Christmas.
  • An invitation to the clergy to reflect anew on the principles and practice of pastoral care and accompaniment in the light of the “Synod Report”, Church Tradition and key pastoral challenges encountered today.
