Bishop David Ricken opens the Synod on Synodality - Oct. 17, 2021
Synodality means asking "How can we as a Church grow and journey together?"
So, let's dream about the Church we are called to be - becoming better witnesses to the Gospel!
During this time, we are all invited to listen to one another in order to hear the promptings of the Holy Spirit
Just as Jesus reached out to all, no one is excluded from participating - we invite you to share your ideas with us.
We are guided by these fundamental questions: How do we journey together at the different levels of the Church (from local to universal) to allow the Church to proclaim the Gospel? And what steps are the Spirit inviting us to take to grow as a synodal Church? Please click the image below to access a survey to share your story & ideas.
