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.

On August 26, 2022, a Press Conference will be held at 1 p.m. (CET) at the Holy See Press Office to present the second stage of the synodal process: the Continental Stage of the Synod on Synodality.

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.com/c/VaticanNews.

We invite you to forward this information to your respective parish, diocesan, associational synod teams… and to those who may be interested.

The event will provide a unique opportunity to better understand the goals and modalities of the continental stage and how we can all move forward together in our synodal journey.
