Understanding Synodality

Synodality is a fundamental principle within the Catholic Church that emphasizes collaboration, consultation, and shared responsibility in making important decisions. It promotes the active involvement of all members, regardless of status or position, in the discernment of the Church's mission and direction.

  • Promoting active participation and engagement of the entire community
  • Encouraging dialogue, inclusivity, and open communication
  • Fostering a sense of co-responsibility and shared decision-making
  • Empowering individuals to contribute their unique gifts and perspectives
  • Strengthening the bonds of unity and solidarity

The Importance of the Synod on Synodality in Community and Society

Our Synod on Synodality goes beyond the boundaries of our faith community. It holds relevance in the broader context of community and society by serving as an example of collective decision-making and participatory governance.
