Bishop Paul, is currently in Rome at the ‘Extra Ordinary Synod’ which many media commentators have reported as a very rare and potentially pivotal gathering of Catholic Bishops in the history of the Catholic Church. This Synod, only the third time such a gathering has been called since the creation of the Catholic Churches ‘Synod of Bishops’ in 1965.

Bishop Butler also spoke to Vatican Radio Oct. 15 as synod members worked in small groups to amend the assembly’s midterm report.” The full report can be read here.
