Exploring a Few Fundamental Questions: The What, Why, Where and How of Being a Synodal Church

Event Details

The synodal path we have been walking as a Roman Catholic church began officially in 2021 and ends in 2023 when the bishops convoke the, ‘Synod on the Synod.’ But it is not supposed to end there! The synodal process has always been about transforming us as a church: we are meant to continue on the path of ‘walking together in the Spirit.’ 

But we have questions! What are we being called to? Why are we being called to it? And most importantly, how are we to do this? What does being ‘synodal’ even look like? Furthermore, why should I care? What’s my part in all this?

Join us for an informal evening where we can explore questions, propose responses, and in doing so, be perhaps discover our place in a  synodal church.
