Archdiocesan Synod Office Sponsors
Informational Meetings in Philadelphia South

The Synod to be held in the Fall of 2002 is an historic event in the lives of the people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It has been sixty-eight years since the Archdiocese held a Synod. The calling of this Tenth Synod for the Archdiocese by Cardinal Bevilacqua is the culmination of a series of planning programs. It affords the Archbishop a special opportunity for him to hear the voice of his people on their hopes, concerns and desires for the faith they hold in communion with him and one another.

The consultation of the people to hear their "voices" is in two parts. The first part occurred last fall when people wrote in to the Synod Office their own needs and hopes. The second part now asks people to respond to topics during assemblies or regional meetings. The meetings will give the Archdiocese the opportunity to offer more information on these topics and it will enable people to share ideas and further discuss the topics.

You are invited to attend one or more of these meetings. Please call 267-299-6995 to register and indicate which meeting you plan to attend. If you decide to come at the last minute, you certainly are welcome.
