Raymond Cardinal Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider recently published a document addressing significant concerns about the upcoming Synod on the Pan Amazon in Rome. They have called upon Catholics to fast weekly and to pray often through October to implore God to prevent error and heresy from perverting the assembly. The document can be found online at www.ncregister.com/images/uploads/BurkeSchneider.pdf
Archbishop Hebda has called for an archdiocesan synod in 2021, which is an assembly designated to help identify the most important needs in the archdiocese and determine a pastoral plan for the future. To help assist with the agenda for the synod, he is hosting “listening sessions” around the archdiocese where he will be present, to which any of the faithful can attend and respectfully bring their views to his attention. A list was provided last week on the back of the bulletin insert and can be also found at archspm.org/synod.
