Synod Implementation launched its first real offensive last weekend in the Central vicariate when efforts to carry out the mandate of the last Synod in January were accelerated.

More than two dozen representatives from the five parishes which make up the Central vicariate met at the Max Murphy Centre in the courtyard of the Chaguanas RC Church to discuss strategies for the way forward.

Vicar for the area, Fr Christopher Lumsden described the two and a half hour session as “very informative” and was punctuated with a lot of interaction as the delegates sought a way forward.

In examining the possible strategies, there were several proposals covering the various methods in which the actions needed to be taken could be effectively pursued.

Fr Lumsden pointed out there was a very distinct intention and willingness of the group to “work together and move the resolutions forward”. He added that this was the overall feeling of the group.

The meeting also revealed that the parishes had all established its implementation teams and were moving ahead with the job of ensuring successful implementation.

Major role of the Parish Implementation Team (PIT) is to ensure that the Synod mandate is successfully implemented. The team also has the responsibility of co-ordinating the ministry of the parish and finding the best ways to organise the parish for mission.

The second meeting of this series was carded for Saturday, May 23 at La Romaine and four days later on May 27, the Northern vicariate will convene its PITs’ meeting, while the Suburban vicariate will hold its session on Saturday, June 6.
