Synod Time

Regarding Sunday 22nd May 2016,
our Anglican Catholic service in Maitland will be CANCELLED.
 
The reason being that Father Matthew will be in Queensland for the Synod.
We pray that he travels relaxed and returns safely.
 
What is a "Synod"?
A synod historically is a council of a church, usually convened to decide an issue of doctrine, administration or application. The word "synod" comes from the Greek "σύνοδος" (synodos) meaning "assembly" or "meeting", and it is synonymous with the Latin word "concilium" meaning "council".

Prayer for the Synod: -  
Almighty and everlasting God, who by thy Holy Spirit didst preside in the Council of the blessed Apostles, and hast promised, through the Son Jesus Christ, to be with thy Church to the end of the world; We beseech thee to be present with the 2015 Synod about to be assembled in thy Name, Save its members from all error, ignorance, pride and prejudice: and of thy great mercy vouchsafe so to direct, govern and sanctify them in their deliberations by thy Holy Spirit, that through thy blessing the Gospel of Christ may be faithfully preached and obeyed, the order and discipline of thy Church maintained, and the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour enlarged and extended. Grant this, we beseech thee, through the merits and mediation of the same Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen
