SYNOD OF BISHOPS 2023
CBCMSB SYNOD SYNTHESIS REPORT
The CBCMSB discussed the correspondence and instructions received from the Vatican, Rome, on the Synod at its conference in August 2021. Each diocese then launched the Synod on synodality around 17 October 2021, the week after its launch by Pope Francis in Rome. The Conference opined that each diocese is best left to their own initiative to understand the synod documents, craft questions and decide how to present these. In all dioceses, small teams were established and a synod contact person was appointed by the local bishop.

For the occasion, Cardinals Mario Grech, Secretary General of the Synod, and Jean-Claude Hollerich, General Rapporteur for the next Synod, will also provide some data on the Syntheses that have reached the General Secretariat of the Synod and have been produced from the unprecedented worldwide consultation of the People of God that took place in the previous months, as well as some information on the ways in which the Document for the Continental Stage will be produced.
The event will be streamed live with simultaneous translation into English, Spanish, French and Italian on the Vatican News YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.
We invite you to forward this information to your respective parish, diocesan, associational synod teams… and to those who may be interested.
