Preparing for the Universal Synod 2023


The next Synod of Bishops, to be held in Rome in October 2023, will focus on the theme For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission. Pope Francis has asked that, in preparation for this synod, a consultation take place throughout the whole Church. This consultation is being organised within each diocese and takes the form of a series of questions, to which written responses are invited.

There are FOUR ways of participating in this consultation:

1. Visit the following Diocesan Synodal Consultation online form – through which you can automatically submit your answers.


2. You can download the following document containing the six questions. Synod Questionmaire Word Document

You can complete it, in your own time, and email it directly to theDromore Diocesan Synodal Core Group at:

3. Copies of the questions (with spaces for answering) will ​also be available in St Therese's Church from Tuesday 15th February until Tuesday 1st March. These can be collected from the church before or after any of the Sunday/Weekday Masses - between these dates - and taken away to be completed at home. Once completed, you can post them to the Dromore Diocesan Synodal Core Group at this address:
