The Synod on Synodality


Pope Francis will invite bishops from across the world to Rome in October of 2023 for a Synod to discern ways to engage more people in the decision-making process that affects the whole Church. The theme is: “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission.”

Leading up to this gathering, local dioceses will be consulting with local Catholics and others to create a report to submit to their national bishops’ conference. 


Pope Francis commenced this initiative the weekend of October 9-10, 2021, with an opening session and a Mass. Bishop Parkes, along with other bishops worldwide, offered an opening Mass on Sunday, October 17, at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle in St. Petersburg.
