NETWORK Workshop: The Church Speaks – Takeaways from the Synod for Youth and Young Adult Ministry
December 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
A virtual series for leaders and volunteers in Youth, Young Adult, and Family & Children Ministries
The Synod that took place this fall was a monumental opportunity for the Church. As it is only one month since this first sitting of the Synod, we ask, ‘What are some of the insights, points and directions that will guide the Church going forward? How do these insights speak to the reality of young people today, and for those who serve young people in ministry both inside and outside the Church?’ Join us for an evening with Sr. Elizabeth Davis RSM who participated in the Synod as a delegate and voting member, and brings from the Synod a wealth of wisdom, insight and opportunities for us in North America.
“Pope Francis has called us to enter a three-year journey to explore together our transformation into a synodal church in mission. With a focus on communion, mission and participation, this journey has engaged thousands of us in parishes, communities, diocese, national groupings, and continental assemblies. Most recently, we have entered the universal stage with the first of two month-long sessions. With the inclusion of lay persons and persons in consecrated life along with cardinals and bishops, this first session has given us a sense of a new experience of church that we must intensify in the next eleven months leading to the final session in October 2024. Together let us dare to build a synodal church in mission!”
