The Office of Synod Implementation exists to assist pastors/administrators, staff and ministry leaders implement the 42 Proposals of our Archdiocesan Synod. These Proposals will help us to become: versed in matters of faith, equipped to share our faith with others, and able to recognize all our efforts as opportunities to glorify the Lord and help to build his Kingdom here on earth. These three goals support the mission each person receives in the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist) and reflect the theme adopted for the Synod, “Established, Anointed, and Sent in Christ.”
