June 2022: Pentecost
That as we enter in, and emerge from,
the Synod Assembly this Pentecost,
the Holy Spirit will inflame our hearts
to proclaim the Good News of
Jesus Christ more energetically
throughout the entire Archdiocese,
we pray to the Lord.

Archdiocese Synod 2022

Pray. Reflect. Follow. – Your Role in Synod 2022

Archbishop Hebda asks for your prayers for the final phase in the Synod process. Your parish’s Synod representatives will meet, along with other assembly members, for the Synod Assembly on Pentecost weekend, June 3-5. Learn more about this process in The Catholic Spirit and in this infographic.

How can you stay involved during these final stages of the Synod process?

  • Pray. Prayer has always been integral to our Archdiocesan Synod process. Please continue to keep the Synod in your prayers and pray in particular for Synod representatives from your parish. Join the bishops and Synod members Saturday, June 4, 7 p.m. for the Pentecost Vigil Mass. Find additional prayer opportunities at archspm.org/synod/pray. 
  • Reflect. The same three focus areas we discussed during the Parish Consultation will be examined in-depth throughout the remainder of the Synod process. Watch the Parish Consultation videos – again, or for the first time – and reflect on these important topics at archspm.org/synodsmallgroups 
  • Follow. Follow The Catholic Spirit to stay up-to-date on the latest news about the Archdiocesan Synod. Visit thecatholicspirit.com
