About the Synod

Last Fall, 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.

Our response as a community and final report
Following Pope Francis’ invitation to local churches to create opportunities to engage its faithful in dialogue about faith and our Church, members of the Montreal English-speaking Catholic community took part in a four-evening series of discussions last February, led by Fr. Raymond Lafontaine, E.V., Episcopal Vicar of the English-speaking Faithful and Director of the diocesan Office for English Pastoral Services. Participants from up to 38 local and neighbouring parishes, organizations and religious communities took part.

The full report summarizing these discussions is now available upon request.




Continue the journey…


Consider concluding the Easter season with The Chosen* and 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? 

Be part of the dialogue. Discover Him in a new light. 

You, your family members, and your parish teams are invited to continue Season One as we journey with the characters in episodes five through eight. Please feel welcome to attend one, some or all of the sessions. 
*Distributed by Angel Studios.
