The Christmas season was targeted as an opportune time to increase participation in Plenary Council 2020 in parishes nationwide.
Within the first six months of the Council’s Listening and Dialogue phase, more than 30,000 people have made individual submissions or were part of a Plenary Council gathering.
It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of people attended a Christmas service last month.
