Journeying Together towards Christ – Penzance area

Communion, Participation, Mission

Pope Francis has invited the entire Catholic Church around the world to take part in a listening journey. This is a process of discernment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit which will form the agenda of the Synod of Bishops in 2023.
As a church, we are being asked to reflect on how we respond to today’s problems and needs, and upon how we become a listening Church. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth is starting its listening journey in Advent and will be gathering views and responses through to February 2022.
We are invited to listen to each other from our hearts, not to respond or solve particular issues or concerns, but simply to discern and listen to the Holy Spirit. Responses will be gathered in the parish, passed on anonymously to the Diocese, and ultimately, the Vatican.


Anthea and Ruth are Synod facilitators for Penzance and will be holding meetings over four weeks starting on 22nd November.

The aim is to foster as broad a consultation as possible, reaching out beyond the boundaries of our local parish Church. Therefore, if you live in the Penzance area and have feedback you would like to give to the Catholic Church please contact
