The year 2024 of the synodal process for ecclesial renewal One Church, One Journey is dedicated to the theme “Church that Goes Forth”.

At the last Diocesan Assembly of November 2023 that launched the year, participants identified a number of themes where the local Church needs to go forth so that, in the spirit of St Paul the Apostle who proclaimed the gospel among us with gestures of healing, we too reach out with “unusual kindness” (Acts 28:2) to heal wounds.

The Church in Malta is inviting everyone who identifies as Catholic to participate in one or more of a series of spiritual conversations that can be attended either in person or online.

The themes discussed are personal struggles, the Christian community of missionary disciples and the new challenges for the local Church.

The aim of these conversations is to listen to one another and to the Spirit as we discern what concrete actions the Church in Malta is being called to undertake in what Pope Francis describes as our “field hospital after the battlefield.”
