Sr Jolanta Kafka, rmi, President of UISG, says: “There are many ways to make synodality visible: our assembly, through its content and method, is an experience of synodality within religious life. We truly hope to experience a privileged space for listening, of searching together with the Holy Spirit. We will dialogue about how we are contributing to the synodal process in the Church, how we can encourage profound listening in a synodal style and how to enter into a dynamic of communitarian discernment as Church, acknowledging vulnerability as a typically human characteristic.


The Meeting point will be streamed in original language on the Vatican News Youtube Channel.
