What is the Synod for a Synodal Church?

"Communion Participation Mission"

The “Synod on Synodality” is a two-year process of listening and dialogue beginning with a solemn opening in Rome in October 2021, with each individual diocese and church participating in the months that follow. The Synod phase of listening and dialogue in our diocese will take place from December 2021 to April 2022. The synodal process will conclude in 2023 with a gathering of bishops in Rome. Pope Francis has invited the entire Church to reflect on a processs that is vital for its life and mission. By journeying together and reflecting together, the Church will learn more about how a synodal process can help us to live communion, to achieve participation, and to open ourselves to mission.
