Synod Sessions

  • The Synod

    All are welcome to participate. Please consider inviting family and friends, especially those who have left the Catholic Church.

    The objective of this synodal process is not to provide a temporary or one-time experience of synodality, but rather to provide an opportunity for the entire People of God to discern together how to move forward on the path towards being a more synodal Church in the long-term.

    Pope Francis characterizes the two interrelated goals of this process of listening: “to listen to God, so that with him we may hear the cry of his people; to listen to his people until we are in harmony with the will to which God calls us.”

    The participant’s guide is meant to help us prepare for taking part in a synodal session. Inside, there is an invitation from Pope Francis, details about the Synod, and instructions on how we can participate in a synodal session.
