In recent months a listening exercise was conducted across the diocese to prepare for a synod of the Catholic Church in Rome next year.
This was in response to an invitation from Pope Francis to make our faith communities synodal.
People responded to an online questionnaire. School students responded in classrooms. Randomly selected parishioners from 24 parishes of our diocese attended Sunday afternoon meetings.
All the reports from these have been distilled into a 10-page document which has now been sent from the Diocese of Cork and Ross to be included in a national text which will go to Rome.
The document is available here to read online or to download as a PDF file. Click the link below.
