Archbishop Hebda needs YOUR help!
The Archdiocesan Synod moves to the individual parish level this fall and your input is needed to help the Archbishop chart the course for our local Church.

Please consider joining the small group discussion process here at Saint Olaf to meet, discuss, and give feedback to the Archbishop on the Synod Questions

Saint Olaf will offer three options for Saint Olaf Parish Open Invite Synod Groups
(Note: Your individual ministries may also offer their own Synod gatherings - check with your ministry lead contact).
