We hope you are already engaged in gathering with others to listen to the Spirit and to each other as you share your insights into communion, participation, and the mission of our Church in today's world. Pope Francis wants to hear from everyone whether you are actively involved in the Church or even from those who have long since walked away from the Church. If you have no synodal gathering to join in this New Year, we encourage you to begin one of your own. Just invite a small group of friends or people who have opinions about the Church. Simply click here now for guidelines how to do this. If you are unable to join or start a synodal listening session in your own region, consider joining us at CCRI. Beginning in the New Year, we are offering multiple new online gatherings to accommodate the various time zones globally. Please check out the available times that may work for you and register for the one that best fits your schedule.
