Background

These articles, letters, reports, and resources have been produced over the course of our Synod Journey to share updates, progress, and news as we travel towards 2020.

Pastoral Letters

Archbishop Malcolm has written a series of Pastoral Letters throughout our Synod Journey beginning with the letter of October 2017 announcing that he was to convoke a Archdiocesan Synod to be held in 2020. All of these letters are available here to read, listen to, or download.
