At Pentecost of 2019, the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis began a Synod process. Simply put, a diocesan synod is a coming together of the local Church. According to Canon 460, a diocesan synod is an “assembly … of selected priests and other members of Christ’s faithful of a particular Church which, for the good of the whole diocesan community, assists the diocesan bishop.” The goal of the Archdiocesan Synod is to help Archbishop Hebda discern, through a consultative process, the pastoral priorities of our local Church today – and into the near future. Your participation, as the Catholic faithful, is key to a successful Synod. You are invited to participate by offering your prayers, pastoral concerns, and ideas for moving this Archdiocese forward. The Synod will take place at Pentecost in 2021. There will be multiple listening events in support of the preparation for the Synod.
