What is a SYNOD?  It is an assembly of the clergy and sometimes also the laity in a diocese or other division of a particular church.  


Was held on Wednesday, August 15th after the 12:10 & 6:00 pm Holy Day Masses in the parish hall.

      These meetings are intended to get a feel for what the lay faithful are thinking in response to the Synod questions in reference to the Archdiocese. 

   The responses are being forwarded to the Archdiocese and combined with other parishes in our Archdiocese to prepare for the 2020 SYNOD.



  The questions:

  • What are we (as an Archdiocese) doing well?
  • What are we (as an Archdiocese) doing not so well?
  • What are we (as an Archdiocese) no doing that we should be?

Thank you to our moderators, scribes, timekeepers, and all who attended.
