Our Lady of the Visitation Parish Synod
The Archdiocese is participating in the worldwide Synod which focuses on the life and mission of the Church. The theme for this Synod is “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.” The word “synod” literally means “walking” or “journeying together.” Pope Francis has called on each of us, as the People of God guided by the Holy Spirit, to help shape the future of the Church in the Third Millennium. The purpose of this Synod is not simply to create more letters or encyclicals, rather it is an opportunity to dream about what our Church can become, what we are called to be as a Church of the poor, to bind up wounds, and learn from one another.
