This Synod is intended to inspire people to dream about the Church we are called to be… The Synod Process is…a journey of growing authentically towards the communion and mission that God calls the Church to live out in the third millennium. The three key words proposed for this Synod are Communion, Participation and Mission.
The Central Question
The current Synod focuses on the topic of synodality itself. The fundamental question for the XVI Synod is: How does this “journeying together” take place today on different levels (from the local level to the universal one), allowing the Church to proclaim the Gospel? And what steps is the Spirit inviting us to take in order to grow as a synodal Church?
THE CONSULTATION PROCESS IN THE ARCHDIOCESE OF ST. JOHN’S
The consultation process will be launched on Christ the King Sunday, November 21, 2021. The consultation will be widespread and will take two forms:
