Diocesan Synod

synod

Last month, Bishop Caggiano mentioned his desire to convoke a diocesan-wide synod. Since then, many hearing about it have expressed great enthusiasm and a desire to participate. What is a diocesan synod? To answer briefly, it is a year-long process of consultation and planning wherein the clergy, religious and the faithful of the diocese come together to discuss and advise the bishop regarding how to make our Church more responsive to our current needs and to plan our future together.
