The Fr. Ignatius Roppolo Memorial Endowment Proudly Presents

The Synod: What the Heck Happened?
A Webinar


The Synod on Synodality is a journey of listening and encounter. Its purpose is for the Church to discern how better to proclaim the Gospel in accordance with the mission entrusted to us; and what steps the Spirit invites us to take in order to grow as a Church of encounter and listening. Two panelists who spent time in Rome during the Synod will offer their reflections on the month-long event: What happened? What comes next? What can we do? Join us for the presentations and conversation. Free and open to the public.

Register here!

Time? 6:30-8:00 p.m. Central Time
Where? Zoom
