How You Can Answer The Holy Father’s Call

Play Your Part in The Synod

Dear friends in Christ, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and I’m praying for a happy and healthy 2022 for all of us.

As you know, the church is currently involved in a Synodal process. Confession: I had to look up what that meant and how we were all supposed to be involved. The Church wants us to take stock of where we are as a parish community, a diocesan community, a world community and to look forward to where we should be headed and how to achieve the goals we need to reach.
