What is Synodality?
Throughout this process, we hear the words: Synod, Synodality, and Synodal process. What do these words mean? Do they mean the same thing? A helpful short definition of the Synod of Bishops is a gathering of bishops that 1. Fosters closer unity between the bishops and Pope 2. Provides counsel to the Pope on matters of faith and morals, and discipline of the Church 3. Studies questions concerning the Church in the world. For more information go to https://www.usccb.org/synod.
Synod – What is it?
Synod is a Greek word (synodos) meaning a meeting or assembly. The two Greek words that make up Synod are syn meaning together and hodos meaning way or journey. The entire Catholic Church is called to participate in the upcoming Synod of Bishops! The upcoming Synod is entitled: “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission.” You can participate in the Synod process, simply by answering few questions from Pope Francis.
Synod – Topics/Questions
Here are the questions: A Synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, “journeys together.” How is this “journeying together” happening in your parish today? How is the Holy Spirit inviting your parish community to grow in “journeying together”? Jesus Christ – What is there about Jesus that draws me to him? What is there about Jesus that makes an impression on me? What is there about Jesus that I would like to share with my family, my neighbors, and the wider community? The Church – What is there about the Church that draws me closer to the Lord and to other people? In the coming years, what are my hopes for the Church that will help to draw me closer to Christ? Reflect and Pray on these important topics/questions to ready yourself. When you are ready to reflect please go to https://form.jotform.com/220404357446048 and fill out online form. Your responses will be added to our Diocesan report that will be submitted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in June 2022. The deadline to complete this survey is Sunday, May 29, 2022.
