Event Details

This is the Opening Mass of the Diocesan Phase of the Synodal Process, which will lead to the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. The path for the Synod is: “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission.”

On October 17, 2021, every diocesan bishop is being asked by the Holy Father to begin this journey in their particular Church with a Mass in their Cathedral. Our diocesan Opening Mass for the Synod will begin at 2:00pm in Saint Columba Cathedral.

The word “Synod” comes from a Greek word which means, “to be on the journey together.” All of us by virtue of our Christian baptism are on a path together. It is important that as we continue the journey that we first, open ourselves to the grace of the Holy Spirit.
