Toward a Constitutively Synodal Church

Toward a Constitutively Synodal Church


Third Intercontinental Massive Online Course (MOOC)


The ongoing Synod on Synodality represents a new and exciting phase in the life of the Church. The celebration of the first session of the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in Rome, which took place in October 2023, was a time to listen to the voices of the local Churches from all Continents and to identify pastoral priorities to be deepened in light of the second session of the Assembly which will take place in October 2024. This new phase of the Synod will require a process of discernment and formation.
