Archdiocesan Synod

What is a Synod? What is the purpose?

  • “A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church.”
  • The purpose is “to discern and establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.”
