Following the engagement by so many people across the Diocese, the diocesan synthesis has been completed and will now be submitted to the National Steering Committee.  The synthesis can be viewed on www.dioceseofmeath.ie from Wednesday 1st June.       

Thanks to all who took part in the synodal conversations during Lent and to all who completed questionnaires and made submissions.  Thanks to all priests and facilitators who organised the synodal meetings in each deanery.
