SYNOD ON SYNODALITY: Evolving Catholicism and the Synod

 


Australasian Catholic Coalition for Church Reform and Garratt Publishing present
SYNOD ON SYNODALITY – EVOLVING CATHOLICISM AND THE SYNOD
Thursday 22 February 2024

Catholicism is experiencing a change of era like no other. A revitalised narrative is needed to offer a fresh vision to the faithful still in the pews and rekindle what embers remain among those no longer engaged. The announcement of the Synod was widely welcomed with many Catholics working long hours to provide submissions that expressed their ‘joys and hopes, griefs and anxieties.’ We now look to the Synod to offer genuine renewal.

The Synod on Synodality – Evolving Catholicism and the Synod convocation will focus on the state of play since the first Assembly and the lead up to the second Assembly in October 2024.

Leading the discussion was Francis Sullivan and Kevin Liston.  

The recording of the convocation can be viewed below.

YOUR SUPPORT IS APPRECIATED

ACCCR works to bring about the Church we dream of – a Christ-like Church. Pope Francis' Synod on Synodality is a moment of hope for this Church. Synodality means all the baptised work together equally in the Church’s mission. We encourage all Catholics to be involved in synodal activities, as well as other activities for renewal and reform. Communication and awareness-raising are essential features. For this we need resources to pay for events as we build on previous werbinars and publications. All ACCCR members involved volunteer their time and effort.
