We are listening: we listen to the Holy Spirit, we listen to each other.
Pope Francis has blessed the opening of the worldwide Synod 2021 – 2023: For a synodal Church: communion, participation and mission. We are pleased to be starting this process in the Archdiocese of New York! View the special video message from Cardinal Dolan below to learn more.
The diocesan phase will consist of gatherings between now and February, where we are all invited to pray and dialogue together. Your priests will provide more information in the weeks and months ahead. The results of our listening sessions will assist in the general assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October 2023. Join us!
