In October we pray with Pope Francis for the Church, ever faithful and courageous in preaching the Gospel; may it be a community of solidarity, fraternity and welcome, always living in an atmosphere of synodality.

‘Dear brothers and sisters, let us have a good journey together! May we be pilgrims in love with the Gospel and open to the surprises of the Holy Spirit. Let us not miss out on the grace-filled opportunities born of encounter, listening and discernment’ – Pope Francis
