SYNOD-SYNOPSIS FOR REPORT
On March 19, 2022 our parish community participated in the Synod which was opened by the Holy Father Pope Francis on October 10, 2021. The Synod is a process rooted in the history of the Catholic Church and can be interpreted as “walking together” or as “the path along which the people of God walk together.” Our parishioners were given four questions to reflect and to discern upon where we are being led in the Church. They then gathered in groups to address and share their concerns, observations and experiences both new and old in the Church. The Synod results can be viewed on our parish website here:
QUESTION 1: What are some things you are facing in life right now that you hope the Church can accompany you in?
QUESTION 2: How do you see yourself sharing in the church work of being Christ’s life and love for the whole world?
QUESTION 3: What are the joys in carrying out journeying together? What helps or hinders us in this?
QUESTION 4: How and where is the Holy Spirit calling us to grow in Journeying with one another
GENERAL COMMENTS: There is a need for the local church (and Diocese)
