The Pre-Synodal Assembly with over 160 delegates from the 26 dioceses including the Bishops took place in Athlone on Sat 18 June 2022. The gathering was the culmination of a process which has seen thousands of Irish Catholics consulted over the past nine months through parishes, dioceses, and organisations as well as online about possible Church reforms in preparation for the Synod in Rome 2023. It has been described as a national and historic occasion. In a short summary gleaned from the diocesan reports –– Irish Catholics want: ’urgent change’; a new language in worship that is not a barrier to communication; the development of new lay ministries as priest numbers continue to decline; ‘a meaningful role for women in ministry and in the governance of the Church, including ordination’; a focus on the vulnerable, the disadvantaged and the oppressed; optional celibacy for priests; a focus on the needs of young people; a reaching out in welcome to marginalised groups including unmarried couples, divorced and remarried, LGBTQ+. This Athlone experience has been described as “a special day” and “a once in a lifetime” which had “a great sense of history about it. People felt that this was a gathering that was breaking new ground.”
