How and when will I participate in this Synod?
We hope you are eager to participate in this synod because we are ready to go.
To get you started, there will be several information sessions held starting February 28 to March 5 both in our parish and online through the archdiocese. The information session PowerPoint document will be on our website.
Pray the synod prayer.
There are proposed questions to help you discern (understand) what the Holy Spirit is guiding us to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation. Starting March 9 to the end of April, there will be several Listening Sessions to facilitate discussion related to the proposed questions.
You will submit your anonymous responses to the Archdiocese synod coordinator before April 29. She will then compile these into a document to be forwarded to the Vatican. The Vatican will compile a document from these and submit it to Pope Francis to assist him with guiding the Church into the future.
The questions are available on our parish website, the Archdiocese website and we also have paper copies if you prefer. Reviewing and praying about these questions is beneficial before attending a listening session. There is no need to pre-register for parish sessions, all are welcome. All synodal information is available in any language.
Check the board in the foyer, our website, and the archdiocese website (caemd.ca/synod) for more details.
Stay informed and participate.
