Listening to Jesus, Listening to Each Other

Synod Preparation in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis

Synod 2021-2023 logoBelow please find the report from our local preparation process for the October 2023 Synod of Bishops. As noted in The Criterion and elsewhere:

  • We asked for, and received, many heartfelt thoughts and feelings about the Church locally as well as throughout the world.
  • The synthesis report is a beginning, not an end.  It summarizes a large amount of input and can now be used for pastoral planning in a variety of settings.
  • Listening to each other while journeying with Christ toward a fuller manifestation of God’s kingdom is an ongoing process.  Our local synod preparation experience builds on prior efforts and sets the stage for additional dialogue, accompaniment and collaboration.

Please keep an eye on The Criterion and other reliable news sources as the synod unfolds throughout the world in the months ahead.
