SYNODALITY: Walking Together
Many thanks to the parishioners who completed the 118 Surveys and the
39 parishioners who attended one of the three Listening Sessions.
Our complete report of the surveys
and Listening Sessions was sent to Pope Francis, Cardinal Sean O’Malley
and Reverend Paul Soper who is the Director of the Office of astoral Planning
for the Archdiocese of Boston.
Limited copies of the report will
be made available at the doors of the church. All are welcome to take
a copy, read it and then return it to the church so that others may have
the opportunity to read it. This completes Saint Christine’s participation
in Phase I of the World Wide Synod. All the responses of the people of
God from Phase I will help usher in Phases 2 and 3.
Many excellent suggestions regarding
the revitalization of Saint Christine’s Parish were included in
our parishioners responses and are in the report. Special thanks to Saint
Chrsitne’s Staff, Nelson Pidgeon, Norm Shacochis and Bridgette Anderson
of Powder Horn Press.
