As some of you may be aware, the Synod on Synodality has prepared and released a document for the penultimate stage of the synod. The “Document for the Continental Stage” is the fruit of the Syntheses resulting from the consultation of the People of God in the first phase of the synodal process and will be the focus of the time of listening, dialogue and discernment of the Continental Synodal Assemblies (January-March 2023).

The Pastoral Staff met and decided that it would be good for our parishioners to become familiar with this document and to read it through the lens of our own parish synod report as well as the Diocese of Cleveland’s report. Links to all three documents are available below. We encourage you to take the time to read and study these documents prayerfully, and to reflect on them as a family of believers. To encourage fruitful dialogue, we encourage you to contact any member of the Pastoral Staff with questions or comments you may have regarding these three documents.
