The First Session of the Synod in Rome has come to an end. A Letter to the People of God and a Synthesis Report have been produced by the Assembly and can be accessed on our Synod page. Another meeting in Rome will take place in October 2024.
With synod discussions continuing in Rome this month, it may be of interest to check out the 'Synod Page' on our website. You will find the responses we collected at parish level as well documents produced by the Diocesan, Continental and Universal stages. The working document that is being used in Rome, called the Instrumentum Laboris, is available to read. Links to an interesting podcast series by Christopher Lamb can also be accessed.
The Working Document for the Continental Stage of the Synod has been posted on our dedicated page. Entitled Enlarge the Space of Your Tent, it summarises the responses gathered from the first phases of the synod. The document will be considered by each of the Continental Assemblies, with their work contributing to the final 'Instrumentum Laboris' (to be completed by June 2023). This will provide the foundation for discussions between the Bishops in Rome this October.
The European Continental Assembly will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from 5-12 February 2023. Further details about the Assembly can be found here.
