A gathering of the faithful in which the Church seeks to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among us and to chart a course forward.

About this event

A synod – from the Greek meaning “journeying together” – is essentially a gathering of the faithful in which the Church seeks to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among us and to chart a course forward as we continue our pilgrim way of faith. As we said, this synod is unique in that instead of a defined group of participants typically from the clergy, religious and theologians of the Church, this synod is calling upon the participation of all the baptized of the world. The hope is that by giving all the faithful a chance to speak, we might, through the collective voice of so many, also hear the voice of God.

To accomplish this goal, each parish is asked to hold a series of gatherings, called ‘consultive sessions,’ to which the faithful of that parish are invited. At these sessions, parishioners will be asked to respond to number of questions about their hopes, joys and concerns about the Church in our time, about how we as the Body of Christ are most effective in carrying out our evangelizing mission to the world, and about how all the faithful understand their own role in that mission. All the faithful throughout the world will be invited to share their prayerful insights into these and other questions, and the combined results – at the local, diocesan and national levels – will be delivered to Rome next year. I look forward to seeing the results and hearing the shared wisdom of so many.
