TOWARDS A LISTENING CHURCH Pope Francis has called for a synod of bishops on the topic of synodality—that is, the process of listening and consultation in the Church. The preparation for the 2023 Synod starts now, with listening and conversation at the parish level. There will be opportunities to share reflections in the weeks and months to come—watch the bulletin for more information! On October 17, at the 5:30pm Evening Mass, Archbishop Etienne will mark the beginning of this important time of reflection in the Church with a special Mass in the Cathedral. All are welcome.
