About the Synod

Just over three months ago, Pope Francis launched a worldwide preparation process for the next Synod of Bishops to be held October 2023, calling all faithful to take part in discerning the path forward for the Church.

What does this mean for me? How can I take part?
Is my parish participating? 

Local churches have been invited by Pope Francis to create opportunities to engage its faithful in dialogue about faith and our Church – past, present, and future. More than just a consultation process, the synod is an opportunity for us to listen to the Holy Spirit speaking through our people and the world around us, and to be shaped by the Word of God. 

“The Chosen”?

See the life of Jesus through the eyes of the people that walked on Earth with him – the disciples, Mary his mother, the Pharisees, the children, those he healed.  What would that look like?  What difference would it make for your personal journey of faith, your experience of belonging to a church community, your witness and service to the world around you? 

Consider being part of the dialogue.

You, your family members, and your parish teams are invited to embark on a four-session synodal journey inspired by 
The Chosen, 
the groundbreaking multi-season film series about the life of Christ, distributed by Angel Studios. 


Have a look at the series preview below.
