Invitation to Synod Listening Session

Pope Francis has approved a new three-stage process for the next gathering of the Synod of Bishops. His aim is to involve the whole church at diocesan, national and continental levels, through a process of “listening and discernment.” The theme is “For a synodal Church: communion, participation, and mission.”

The purpose of the diocesan phase is “to consult the people of God, so that the synodal process may be carried out by listening to all the baptized.” This means each church will be conducting “listening and discernment” sessions at the parish level.

St. Mary Magdalene will have two (2) listening sessions:

🟠 Sunday, November 14th, immediately following the 8:45 am Mass, in the Church

🟠 Sunday, November 21st, immediately following the 11:00 am Mass, in the Church

We are encouraging everyone to stay and participate in this important session. Your participation and input will be vital. #Listeningchurch
