Catholic Bishops of the United Kingdom Release Initial Reflections on the Synod - "Seeking Our Hearts’ Desire" FULL TEXT

UK Bishops Release:

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have released a statement titled Seeking Our Hearts’ Desire (FULL TEXT Below) offering their initial reflections on the National Synthesis document.

This in turn was the fruit of a discernment process in which the National Synthesis Team reflected on hundreds of pages of Synod reports received from the dioceses of England and Wales as well as Catholic organisations and individuals.

They collated the material to give a picture of the synodal process in England and Wales.


Cardinal Vincent Nichols took part in a press conference to discuss the National Synthesis and the Bishops’ reflection statement alongside Canon Christopher Thomas, General Secretary of the Bishops’ Conference and Sarah Adams, Clifton Diocese’s Director for the Department of Adult Education and Evangelisation.
