The Church around the world has entered the Continental Stage for the Synod of Bishops on Synodality. Groups around the country are praying with and responding to the Document for the Continental Stage, which was published recently. You can download prayer resources, including for use in liturgies, read the document and access the submission portal here.
The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has also released three documents to support the parishes' ongoing participation in the Synod of Bishops journey:
- prayer petitions to be used in coming weeks. The suggestion is to use one prayer from the selection each week
- a bulletin notice about the Continental Stage of the Synod of Bishops, with some new details and a link to various resources
- the Synod of Bishops logo with 2024 (rather than 2023) as the end date for the Synod. If you have used the old logo in various places, then this can be used to update the previous one.
