Towards the Universal Synod of 2023.
This week, the Diocese of Meath continues its synodal pathway. All members of the Christian community are invited to take part in this synodal process which will take place at various locations around the Diocese on the Tuesdays of Lent. The meetings are moments of spiritual discernment, where we listen to God's Word, and to God's Spirit who speaks through the Baptised, to discern what God is saying to the Church at this time. As Bishop Deenihan said in his Lenten message: "By asking us to reflect on our experience of communion, participation, and mission in the life of our Church at parish level, Pope Francis is calling each of us to play our part in bringing about a new springtime for our Church".
The meetings in our Deanery will be held in Kilbeggan Parish Centre, Harbour Road, Kilbeggan, (Eircode N91 PPK1) on Tuesday March 15th & 22nd @ 8.00pm. You are welcome to come on a night which suits you, but in an attempt to spread the attendance, we have this flexible structure:
Tuesday 15th March (8.00pm) -  those involved in the administration of parish life parish staff, members of Parish Pastoral Councils, members of Parish Finance, Committees, members of Baptism Teams Safeguarding Representatives, counters, those involved in prayer and apostolic groups, Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Legion of Mary, Pioneer Association, Apostolate of Eucharistic Adoration, Teams of Our Lady, Meals-on-Wheels;
Tuesday 22nd March (8.00pm) - those involved in schools, pupils/students, teachers and school, staff, members of parents’ association, members of BOMs, those involved in youth organisations and sports groups, young people and parents of children and teenagers; 
Tuesday 29th March (8.00pm) - Mass of Thanksgiving. All are welcome. See the Synod page on www.dioceseofmeath.ie for an explainer video about this process. See www.synod.ie for more resources. Please pray the following prayer for the success of this process: 
The Universal Synod Prayer
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
