In October of 2021, Pope Francis called for a synod that began upon its announcement and that is scheduled to conclude in October of 2023. What is a synod? This is a global time of reflection and dialog (in this case involving both clergy and the laity) on a given theme that involves the life and/or mission of the Church. For example, in the recent past, Pope Francis has held synods on Marriage and Family Life and on Youth Ministry. This time around, the synod could not have a broader possible scope! He wishes to discuss the Church itself, and how it is doing in responding to the needs of our times. Specifically, beginning at the parish level globally, each faith community is being asked to prayerfully consider three questions for discussion. Responses will be collected and summarized regionally, nationally and finally globally. Pope Francis and the bishops in union with him will study this feedback in their ongoing efforts to lead us into the 21st century. The three questions or topics of discussion can be summarized as follows:

The three questions or topics of discussion can be summarized as follows:

1. Where am I encountering God and his church in my spiritual life? (In other words, which ministries and/or devotional practices are currently bearing fruit in my community and in my own spiritual life?)

2. Where is the Church wounded or in conflict? Where is it failing to meet the mission of Christ or the needs of parishioners in crisis? What obstacles is the Church currently facing in carrying out its mission? (In other words, where are we currently failing or coming up short? Where is reform needed? Where are the battlefronts?)

3. Where do you feel the HolySpirit is calling us, the Church, to respond, grow or change? (In other words, where is the pathway for conversion and growth, as a Church?)

"Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

- Matthew 11:29
