A Letter to the People of God
With gratitude and hope, Synod 2023 participants have released a Letter to the People of God speaking to the experience of these last weeks: "Together, in the complementarity of our vocations, our charisms and our ministries, we have listened intensely to the Word of God and the experience of others."
The Synthesis Report
The Synthesis Report at the conclusion of the 16th General Assembly of the Synod on Synodality is published. Looking ahead to the second session in 2024, the text offers reflections and proposals on topics such as the role of women and the laity, the ministry of bishops, priesthood and the diaconate, the importance of the poor and migrants, digital mission, ecumenism, and abuse.
The 16th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops is pleased to share the Synthesis Report of the First Session of the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, "A Synodal Church on Mission."
This "is not a final document, but an instrument at the service of ongoing discernment." We invite you, along with all the People of God, to continue to #WalkTogether as a #ListeningChurch by praying and reflecting with the synthesis report highlights below.
Let’s continue our journey towards the Second Session of the 16th Assembly adoring our Lord and serving our sisters and brothers.
