SYNOD

COMMUNION—PARTICIPATION—MISSION

Our Listening Session is scheduled for 

Thursday, January 6, 2022 at 6:30 pm at Our Lady of Lourdes.

 

Pope Francis has called for a World Synod of Bishops on “Synodality,” to be held at the Vatican in October 2023. In response to this call, and in conjunction with preparation for that World Synod of Bishops, the Diocese of Syracuse will hold a Diocesan Synod in the Spring of 2024. The word “synod” means “a gathering”, but it is much more than a single  meeting. The Holy Father has indicated that a synod is a process, not a single event. Another way of defining the word “synod” is “a process of journeying together to seek the will of the Holy Spirit for the Church.” He has indicated that he wishes the entire People of God to be engaged in this process, to be consulted. “… the purpose of the Synod… is not to produce documents, but “to plant dreams, draw forth prophecies and visions, allow hope to flourish, inspire trust, bind up wounds, weave together relationships, awaken a dawn of hope, learn from one another and create a bright resourcefulness that will enlighten minds, warm hearts, give strength to our hands.”

Synodality is thus a way of being Church, a way of journeying together in communion, through participation, in mission to live the good news of Christ.

HOPE APPEAL 2021

“YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH”

        Hope Appeal has begun and will conclude December 31, 2021.

 Together, when we pledge our gift to the Annual HOPE Appeal, we are giving thanks to Christ for the innumerable gifts we’ve been given and helping our friends and neighbors who benefit each year from the diocesan good works funded through our annual appeal.

We ask all parishioners to contribute to this year’s HOPE Appeal.

If we all give, we will easily meet our  HOPE Appeal goals which our parishes share of the support for HOPE Appeal-funded ministries, programs, and services. If we exceed our target, 100 percent of the excess will be returned directly to our parish. However, if we do not meet this goal, the shortfall will be taken from our general fund.Your gift, no matter the size, whether it is a pledge or a one-time gift, is important.

If you have already returned your HOPE Appeal pledge card— THANK YOU! If you are still prayerfully considering your HOPE pledge, you may bring your completed pledge card to Mass next weekend or drop  it by the parish office. You may also pledge your gift to our parish’s campaign online at www.syrdio.org.

With your help, we can assure the continued support of many important programs that help thousands in our diocese each year.; education for our children, college and seminary students, evangelization, Catholic Charities services, and more.
