Archdiocese of Liverpool Synod


The Archdiocese of Liverpool has been conducting a form of local synod process.  Although it has been impeded by Covid related restrictions, it has produced some recommendations.  Fr Henry has some comments on his Offerimus tibi Domine blog.

Mostly the recommendations are pretty generalised, and lacking in originality.  However, the following items in the Liturgy section are fairly encouraging.

3.4 The Synod proposes that across the Archdiocese there is access to a variety of liturgical styles and celebrations.

3.5 The Synod proposes that the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite be more widely available.

3.6 The Synod proposes that we use the opportunities the liturgy provides for silence.

3.7 The Synod proposes that resources be found to promote good liturgical music.

3.8 The Synod proposes that more value be placed on the need for beauty in our liturgy, in the way it is celebrated and in the liturgical environment.
