2023 SYNOD on SYNODALITY: Why Participate?

Synodality is “journeying together” - a way of living out our faith that involves shared responsibility, listening and speaking to one another, and discernment with the Holy Spirit to address the issues facing our Church today. The diocesan consultation about how we journey together is underway, and we want to hear from everyone - as many people as possible, especially those who are often excluded or who are not involved in the life of the Church. There are two main ways to participate. Listening sessions will be held in a variety of formats during the months of January, February and March as determined by parishes, institutions and organizations. And for those unable to join in a listening session, an online survey is available at

Why participate?  Because you are a member of the People of God, the Body of Christ!  The People of God share a common dignity and vocation through the Sacrament of Baptism and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit can speak to you and through you!  You have something to say that the Church wants and needs to hear!  

Each week for (5) weeks the committee will offer a question for you to think about.  In February or March you will be invited to share your reflections with other parishioners and friends.

1/9 Question - Who in the Catholic Church has walked with you on your faith journey?  How?
1/16 Question - How do the Mass, Church's ministries and activities inspire you in your daily life?
