What to Expect when you’re expecting… to participate in Synod small groups this Fall

We hope you join in this important step in shaping the future of our Archdiocese. Here’s how it will go.

  • Arrive at your parish and find a seat at a table of about 8.
  • Watch a video which will lead everyone in prayer and share teaching on our beautiful Catholic faith to inform our discussion and response.
  • As you are comfortable, share your experience and ideas in discussion with your tablemates.
  • Respond to ideas and offer your own suggestions on a feedback form to be considered by Archbishop Hebda.
