Synod 2021 - 2023

st-louis-catholic-church-synod-logoOur Pastorate was a part of a global Synod process called for by Pope Francis: For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission. This process called for the Catholic Church—at all levels—to engage with Catholics and non-Catholics alike and listen to each other. The aim of the process was to renew our ability to live out our mission and build up our communion in our own particular time and place. As Pope Francis frequently reminds us, synodality is not a one-time event, but an invitation to an ongoing style of Church life.

Final reports for our Pastorate are available below. A synthesis report for the Archdiocese of Baltimore is available at
