Listen to Archbishop Hebda as he reads his pastoral letter, You Will Be My Witnesses: Gathered and Sent from the Upper Room:
What is a Synod? What is the purpose?
“A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church.”
The purpose is “to discern and establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.”
Synod 2022 Prayer
We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go
and how we are to pursue it.
We are weak and sinful;
do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path
nor partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life
and not stray from the way of truth
and what is right.
All this we ask of You,
who are at work in every place and time,
in the communion of the Father and the Son,
forever and ever. Amen.
Mary, Mother of the Church, Pray for us.
