What will ‘Synodality‘ mean for Catholicism in Ireland? – ACI Zoom meeting 24 June 2021 @ 8.00pm

What will ‘Synodality‘ mean
for Catholicism in Ireland?

ACI Zoom Meeting June 24, 2021 at 8.00 p.m.

Fr Brendan Hoban

to speak to ACI on Killala Diocese’s three-year listening process 

‘Placing Faith in Hope’ and Ireland’s ‘Synodal Pathway‘, to begin this year.

Likely to have only seven serving priests by 2035 – with only two priests ordained in the past two decades – the western diocese of Killala is now confronted with the ‘cliff edge’ forecast for the Irish Catholic church by the papal nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown, in 2017.

No one has been closer to Killala’s listening process – ‘Placing Faith in Hope‘– than Fr Brendan Hoban, the diocesan co-ordinator. Faced now with the necessity of moving decisively towards responsible lay parish councils and family-focused Mass and faith formation, how will Killala, and all other Irish dioceses, make this crucial transition?

Fr Hoban is also a founding member of the Association of Catholic Priests in Ireland.

What can other dioceses and parishes learn about ‘synodality’ from the Killala experience, now that radical change is certain?

Join us on June 24th – online – at 8.00 p.m.

Admission to the talk is free and registration is not necessary.
