“By walking together, and together reflecting on the journey made, the Church will be able to learn from what it will experience which processes can help it to live communion, to achieve participation, to open itself to mission.”
The Synod gives voice to the people and the Church is all-ears
By Sister Katie Eiffe, CSJ
Editor’s note: Sister Katie Eiffe is the Vicar for Religious and Diocesan Director of Synod Planning.
