In October of 2022, Pope Francis announced that the Synod would be extended to 2024. This extension allows for a more relaxed period of discernment before the bishops meet to discuss and prepare a document to counsel the Pope.
The Synodal Church - “Be heard. We are better together!”
The aim of the Synod is to discern how we are “living the faith”.
Are we as a Church, achieving this together? Or are we divided on issues which inhibit unity in the Church? Where do we need to come together?
