Limerick Diocesan Synod Launch

In his homily, the bishop said there is now an opportunity to rebuild the Church and urged that it not be missed.

“All of us together, clergy and lay, are being offered this opportunity to regenerate and build up the Church of the future in our diocese. Let’s not miss this appointment with history,” he said. 

“It’s undeniable that our Church has been rocked. It has stumbled badly but it has not fallen. We need to rebuild and repair, listening to what the Spirit is saying to the Church today,” he said.
