The theme for this synod is, “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.” Rather than simply a meeting of bishops, Pope Francis has asked us, the People of God, to take part in the new synod—“For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.” Our parish will be conducting a synodal listening session on Tuesday, January 18 at 9:30 AM in De Sales Hall. This session will provide an opportunity for every member of our parish community to share our thoughts and feelings, but more importantly to discern how the Holy Spirit is guiding us in our journey together.
How are you doing with the resolutions you made earlier this month? Still exercising? Counting calories? What about your spiritual resolutions? If you need some help with the latter, consider FORMED. It offers something for all ages and has English and Spanish options. Are you interested in a daily topic, the sacraments, the saints, or faith formation? Noted presenters including Dr. Tim Gray, Dr. Michael Barber, Dr. Ben Akers, and Dr. Elizabeth Klein present exceptional insights into a variety of topics. What about a movie about Saint Bernadette or Saint Ignatius? For a longer program, check out the books. Our parish purchased the license for FORMED and it is available to all parishioners at no cost.
