We have published a summary of the 31 listening sessions conducted at St. Francis of Assisi (February-May 2022) as part of Pope Francis’ call to synodality. This report includes key learnings that address the 10 themes provided by the Archdiocese of San Antonio grouped by two questions posed at each listening session. While it is not a representative sample of what all parishioners might be thinking, it is the result of excellent sessions where we prayed for guidance from the Holy Spirit and then listened to one another as we voiced our perspectives and lived experiences of the Church, Archdiocese, and parish.
Our parish feedback was sent to the Archdiocese; the Archdiocesan summary was then used as input to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ National Synthesis of the Diocesan Phase of the Synod and, ultimately, the Vatican Working Document for the Continental Phase of the Synod. We thank all of our parishioners who took the time to participate in this synodal process and look forward to other opportunities as we journey together as a Synodal Church.
