Pope Francis' Worldwide Synod


Synod Extended through 2024

Pope Francis has extended the Synod on Synodality through 2024

Bishops will meet in Rome in both October of 2023 and October of 2024. Pope Francis’ decision reflects his desire that the church to discern the theme of synodality over a longer period. Also for the synod to be thought of as a process where (only by the grace of the Holy Spirit) the People of God walk together toward the Lord’s will for His Church. Certainly, the prayerful dialogue of the diocesan phase has created some energy, excitement, and shared vision of a Church that journeys together.


Read about our process and/or final combined summary report submitted to Archbishop Paul Etienne at the Chancery on May 6, 2022.

A hard copy with all documents is available in the office for review.
