Synod

Our Holy Father Pope Francis invites us: “Let’s walk together as a church with the Holy Spirit”.

The Archdiocese of Montreal is responding to Our Holy Father by engaging everyone to join the mission: In Jesus Christ, let us build a living Church that allows itself to be evangelical, is welcoming and close to the people.

Everyone is invited to participate, to pray and draw inspiration from the Gospel and from each other:

  • Allow hope to flourish
  • Inspire trust
  • Bind up wounds
  • Weave relationships
  • Listen and discern
  • Adapt to our culture
  • Form consensus.

Fundamental question: In Saint Edmund of Canterbury Parish, how are we announcing the Gospel and “journeying together” today? What steps does the Holy Spirit invite us to take to grow our “journeying together”?

What is involved? We invite you to commit to a one-time, two-hour to explore these themes in small groups of 5-7 people and share the findings with other small groups present at our assemblies. Each session involves prayer, private meditation, sharing and listening. Meetings will be held in the Saint Edmund of Canterbury Parish Hall.
