SYNOD Conference

On Wednesday we were invited to spend the day with Mrs O'Driscoll, Ms O'Malley and the new chaplaincy change-maker group as we journeyed together discussing the Synod questions sent by Pope Francis.

We started the day with an ice-breaker followed by a song from Jeremiah 'For surely I know the plans I have for you'.

We split into 4 groups and explored the questions based on Communion (Our life of faith together), Participation (How we live our life of faith), Mission (Announcing the Good News with others).

We were honest with our answers and it made for interesting discussions.

The students chosen were from years 7-9, Catholics and non Catholics. It was lovely to mix with students we didn't know so well.

The day ended with a prayer service. We placed a pebble in water to represent the ripples of change that we hope will take place in the coming weeks and months.

Selly Park Convent looked after us and we explored the beautiful grounds at break times.
