Here is the Montreal synodal Summary!

This document has been compiled from numerous sources, including parish and mission groups in our diocese, members of the institutes of consecrated life and other groups of faithful of varying ages and diverse origins. Responses from individuals are also among the source material collected.

Despite a rather low overall rate of response on the part of our diocesan faithful to the process of reflection begun last fall, the synodal meeting on June 11, 2022, supported the findings as presented in the Summary and added some remarks pertaining to the remainder of the work to be done (see Appendix ‘B’ attached).

This document holds great importance for us, as it does for the Catholic Church in Quebec, in Canada and for the Church as a whole! Indeed, the conclusions presented here will continue to stimulate reflection at both the diocesan and the provincial levels, among the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and even in Rome, as we look forward to the 2023 Synod of Bishops to be held in October 2023.

So let’s keep listening to one another and listening to the Holy Spirit, as we move towards a synodal and missionary transformation of the Catholic Church, here in Montreal… and around the world!
