The Catholic Church is called to participate in the upcoming Synod of Bishops.  In preparation for the World Synod of Bishops in 2023, Pope Francis is asking for your input on the topic of “For a Synodal Church, Communion, Participation and Mission.”  You are invited to join Fr. Ed and our parish Synod representatives for a Parish Consultive Session on December 6 (last opportunity). We invite family, friends and neighbors to participate in one of these sessions.

Reflection Questions for Parish Consultive Sessions

"Towards a synodal Church: communion, participation and mission. Pope Francis is inviting all of God’s people — and not just the elites of parishes and chanceries — to listen, one to the other, and all to the Holy Spirit, to discern a path forward for the Church, to imagine a different future for the Church and her institutions in keeping with the mission she has received.”

  1. What fills you with joy about the Catholic Church? What causes you concern about the Catholic Church?

  2. Are you encouraged to speak up courageously and responsibly about challenges and concerns? Do you feel heard? Do you listen to the voices of others? How can we create greater opportunities for people to be heard in Church and in the public square?

  3. What type of support do you need to grow in your personal relationship with Jesus and His Church? What type of support do you need to help others to enter into a personal relationship with Jesus and His Church? How can the Catholic Church accompany and support you with these?


Prayer for the XVI Synod of Bishops

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.


With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts;


Teach us the way we must go
and how we are to pursue it.


We are weak and sinful;
do not let us promote disorder.


Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path
nor partiality influence our actions.


Let us find in You our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life
and not stray from the way of truth
and what is right.


All this we ask of You,
who are at work in every place and time,
in the communion of the Father and the Son,
forever and ever.
