A Synod – the word means “journeying together” – is a formal assembly of representatives of the whole diocesan community: clergy, religious and lay people.  Through the Synod process, which involves collaboration, discernment, governance and communion, the Bishop seeks advice on matters concerning the good of the whole diocese.  Declarations and decrees are promulgated which set the direction for the diocese in the form of a Diocesan Pastoral Plan.  So, Diocesan Synods are important instruments and occasions for effecting renewal.
