04 Oct 2015 08:08
The Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland Eamon Martin and the Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin, will represent Ireland's Catholic bishops at the Synod of Bishops in Rome,which begins today and runs for three weeks.
The theme for the Synod which will be attended by some 300 church leaders and some lay people is "The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World".
Last week, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin told RTÉ News he expected there would be an opportunity, during the Synod, to discuss the issue of a Papal visit to Ireland with Pope Francis.
It followed speculation about such a visit after the Pontiff announced that the next World Meeting of Families will take place in Dublin in three years' time.
