Pope Francis has called for the people of God and clergy to convene and work together to listen and discern a vision for the future of the Church. Celebrating a Synod means walking on the same road together. The Synod on Synodality is intended to inspire people to dream about the Church we are called to be.

There are four questions below that we ask you to pray over and consider. We suggest praying the Synod Prayer first before you answer the questions.

As we begin our listening and sharing, we invite you to consider what the Holy Spirit is calling us to do, reflect and prepare your thoughts on each question We are asking that you submit your responses by March 15, 2022.
