ACTA- A Call to Action- held its annual National Conference on Saturday 16th October, delivered via Zoom and the first since the national lockdown in 2020. The title “Synodality: A Path for Renewing both the Church and Society” comes from a quote in the letter of Cardinal Mario Grech to the clergy of Malta. The synodal process is intended to refocus the Church on its central mission and to prepare it to play its part in the future re-alignment of society. The Conference was attended by over a hundred representatives and delegates from all twenty-two dioceses of England and Wales as well as some representatives from Scotland.
