Pope Francis has launched the Synod on Synodality, an ambitious two-year global process of listening to the faithful. “Synod” comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “walking together on the road”. There have been many synods in the history of the Church, but these have traditionally been opportunities for bishops to come together to determine the path forward for the Church. With the Synod on Synodality, Pope Francis is asking every Catholic to help discern what the Holy Spirit is telling us at this moment as the Church enters its third millennium.

The first phase of the Synod on Syndodality will last through the first half of 2022 and will see the world’s faithful sharing their thoughts at a diocesan level. All those diocesan-level responses will be collected and summarized. Then the bishops of Canada will meet to discuss what they heard in their respective dioceses, followed by larger multinational meetings and, ultimately, culminating in a synod of bishops in the Vatican in 2023.

Your participation is incredibly important for the success of the Synod on Synodality, so we kindly ask you to complete the survey.
