Preparation for Synod 16 at St. Mary of the Hills
Our Archdiocese is undergoing exciting growth as we approach Synod 16 in November. This Synod promises to help us focus first and foremost on Jesus and telling others about Jesus’ love and goodness. Leading up to the Synod, our parish will be hosting a Dialogue Gathering on May 25th at 6:00 PM and concluding about 9:30 PM. We, as a parish, will be led through a presentation on a shared faith experience and gather responses to inform and guide those participating in the Synod. The evening will include a dinner. We need you, your ideas and your feedback. It is our way of participating. The session is designed for sharing in small groups, responding to themes presented for consideration. Please Register
