Some changes could be on the way for the Catholic Church. 

Pope Francis has announced a two-year consultation process that aims to reform the Church. 

Called "Synod" the aim is to consult every Catholic parish and bishop around the world on the future direction of the Church. 

Assistant Catholic Bishop of Auckland Bishop Michael Gielen told Kate Hawkesby the Pope wants everyone to have their voices heard.  

“We're going to approach this in complete openness. We’re called to listen.” 

Bishop Gielen says change is always hard for an ancient historical community but the Church is up for it.  

“We haven’t always got everything right in the past and we have to listen.”
