Criterion staff report

Logo for the Synod of Bishops on synodalityCatholics and others across central and southern Indiana are invited to take part in two listening sessions related to the meeting of the Synod of Bishops on synodality.

One session will take place from 9:30-11:30 a.m. on March 16 at St. Mark the Evangelist Parish, 535 E. Englewood Ave., in Indianapolis. The other session is from 9:30-11:30 a.m. on March 23 at St. John Paul II Parish, 2253, W. St. Joe Road, in Sellersburg.

Participants will prayerfully discuss two key questions about how well the Church is fulfilling its mission and helping people in southern and central Indiana live as faithful disciples of Jesus. Input from the sessions will supply content for a report from the archdiocese to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Delegates to the synod on synodality—made up of ordained, religious and lay Catholics from around the world—met last fall. Its concluding meeting will take place later this year in October. In the meantime, dioceses around the world have been invited to gather the thoughts and reflections of Catholics and others in preparation for the final meeting.

Those interested in taking part in the upcoming listening sessions in the archdiocese should register by calling 317-236-1550 or sending an e-mail to catechesis@archindy.org. †
