15th-16th January 2022
Our Lady of Victory Synodal Pathway Day
The synodal pathway is a journey of mutual listening and discernment.
As it has been mentioned over the past weeks, this weekend we will have an opportunity to reflect widely over our journey of faith both individually and collectively as parish community.
A questionnaire will be made available during masses and there will be an opportunity to share thoughts on this matter.
Sessions will be lead by Maria Hewitt (our parish representative), Mgr. Jim and Fr Marco
The Prayer of the Synod: Adsumus Sancte Spiritus
Attributed to St. Isidore of Seville (560-636), it has been traditionally used at Councils and Synods for hundreds of years. The version below was specifically designed for the Church’s Synodal journey from 2021 to 2023.
We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go
and how we are to pursue it.
We are weak and sinful;
do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path
nor partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life
and not stray from the way of truth
and what is right.
All this we ask of You,
who are at work in every place and time,
in the communion of the Father and the Son,
forever and ever. Amen.
