Synod gives voice to the public
On May 21, the pope announced all parishes and diocese will be participating in a worldwide synod.
Check with your local parish for a schedule of synod listening sessions.
Every parish and diocese will host listening sessions for Catholics, non-Catholics and fallen-away Catholics with our priests and bishop. The summary of the meetings will be compiled and forwarded to the USCCB and then to Rome.
There's a series of 10 questions that discussions will be based upon. We have them in English, Spanish and Vietnamese if you would like to review them and/or the timeline on the diocesan website before you attend a listening session.
2022 Regional meetings: - Jan. 13 Algona, Jan. 18 - Carroll, Jan. 25 - Sioux Center, Feb. 1 - Moville.
