What is synodality?

The Diocesan Pastoral Council has met five times so far this year. At our first gathering in February we committed to understanding more about synodality and practicing synodality, in the way we conduct our meetings, make decisions, and engage with others in the diocese.  We take seriously our role in promoting a synodal Church both locally and globally.
