Bishop Brendan Leahy encouraged by youth involvement in the Church.BISHOP Brendan Leahy has said that he has been struck by the impressive level of genuine response shown by teenagers in recent consultation with them in relation to the Limerick Diocesan synod.In his Easter Message, Bishop Leahy said that he was greatly encouraged by the feedback offered by young people on how they see the Church of the future. He also issued an open invitation to them and all others to participate in the renewal of the Church locally through the Limerick Diocesan Synod.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He said that thousands of young people from across the diocese will put forward their opinions over the coming months with regard to the issues they would like to see addressed at the Synod, which takes place in April of next year.“Easter is the ultimate season of new beginnings and our Synod process is itself a path of discovery to a new beginning. It’s about trying to determine what type of diocese we want in the years ahead and it has been especially heartening for me to speak about the Synod in recent weeks with groups of remarkable teenagers from around the Diocese.“It has convinced me even more that the ‘young Church’ in our Diocese will offer a vital contribution to our Synod. Young people care about the Church and that’s the message coming across. Our task now is to harness those opinions and put them into the mix with all others so that we have a very clear pathway forward”, he said.
