In January 2017, Pope Francis called for a Synod of Bishops to take place in October of 2018 on the topic of, “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment”. All dioceses have been asked by the Holy Father to provide input.
With this in mind the Chaplaincy Coordinator at All Saints Catholic High School decided to invite Bishop Ralph, students in Y11 and above and all the Chaplaincy Coordinators from all the Catholic schools in the Diocese to dine with Bishop Ralph at the Pastoral Centre, so that they could have their say on the Church.
Tuesday, January 16th saw students from All Saints, Notre Dame, St Mary’s, St Bernard’s and St Pius X Catholic High Schools gather for an informal chat and a bite to eat with Bishop Ralph.
The students plan to meet again in the near future.
