We are deeply grateful to MACSAS (Ministry and Clerical Sexual Abuse Survivors) and Catholic Survivors for supporting us and guiding our planning.

 

Our gatherings will seek positive, lay-led and empowering outcomes to create

a safe and just church for all people, especially the most vulnerable.

PLEASE NOTE

There is no charge for any of these events, but both

Root & Branch and Scottish Laity Network are voluntary and unfunded.

Your donations alone enable our work.

OUR INCLUSIVE LAY-LED SYNOD*

concluded live in Bristol and online

5th - 12th September, 2021

*In the Catholic Church, Synods usually mean only bishops and only men.
We are reclaiming its true meaning of walking “the way together”, listening deeply to one another. Everyone is welcome!

”But, now, look to that glorious garden which love planted, and gather to yourself every virtue in true humility and simplicity of heart. And although you find yourself among people of various states of mind, learn how patient divine goodness has been to us all…” Hildegard to the Monk Guibert (letter 106r, AD1176)
