A SYNOD THAT STARTS WITH WOMEN
AND DOESN’T END THERE

OUR INCLUSIVE SYNOD*

5th - 12th September, 2021

Thank you Root & Branchers - we did it!

*In the Catholic Church, Synods usually mean only bishops and only men.
We are reclaiming its true meaning of walking “the way together”, listening deeply to one another. Everyone is welcome!

Pope Francis wants

a Synodal Church that listens deeply.
