Pope Francis has summoned a synod of bishops in October 2023. And he has called on people
around the world, inside and outside the Church, to contribute to the synod discussion. From
January until April 2022, across the Archdiocese of Grouard-McLennan, we will gather in parishes
to Listen, Discern, and Journey Together. Please check the following website to learn more about
the Synod gatherings.

Locally we are preparing a series of listening sessions for the upcoming Synod. We invite you
to join us in this process, that we may share our faith and walk together as the Universal Church.
Our parish animators will be reaching out to you in the coming week to extend an invitation.
The tentative dates and timings of our Listening Gatherings are listed below. Location of
gathering will follow ASAP.
