About the event
The biggest listening and discussion event the Church has ever undertaken is happening in the Archdiocese of Baltimore and across the globe. It is called Synod 2021-2023. Pope Francis and Archbishop William Lori are inviting all Catholics, all people of other faith traditions and people of good will to participate, pray, reflect and share thoughts and ideas.
Synod discussion and listening sessions are being conducted in every local Catholic Church. Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Baltimore are holding prayerful listening sessions where the feedback will be compiled and delivered to Pope Francis.
Here at our Pastorate, we are asking you to participate on Tuesday, April 5th at 7pm in the Legacy Room at Holy Family. You are not expected to answer quickly, but to take time to pray and invoke the Holy Spirit for inspiration. The evening will include facilitators to lead the discussions and small group sharing. You can read the questions at https://www.archbalt.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Consultation-Questions.pdf.
You can offer your thoughts individually online at https://www.archbalt.org/synod-feedback/
The local phase of the Synod began in October 2021 and will close by Easter 2022. The larger regional and global process then begins. The goal of the Synod is to make sure people are heard and to discern the ways that we are all journeying together as a Church.
Let’s journey Together!
