Port Louis, 08 October, 2021 / 2:42 pm (ACI Africa).
The need for the people of God in Mauritius to fully participate in the upcoming Synod on Synodality has been emphasized by the Bishop of Mauritius’ Port-Louis Diocese.
In a pastoral letter issued Friday, October 8, Maurice Cardinal Piat addresses the concept of synodality and underscores the need for participation.
“Synodality for the Church is a way of walking together to listen to each other, to listen to the Spirit together, to bring each one of us to participate in the mission of the Church,” Cardinal Piat says in his message to the people of God in the Indian Ocean Island nation.
The Cardinal further says, “I encourage all the faithful, lay people, Priests and Religious to take advantage of this opportunity to make their contribution for the vitality of our Church depends on your participation.”
For a successful Synod in Port-Louis Diocese, the members of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (Spiritans – CSSp) invites “Christians in Parishes, young people, children, adults, elderly, practicing or not practicing, Christians involved in movements and services (education, families, charity and social work, the sick, hospital and prison chaplaincies, etc.) to fully participate.”
