Spiritual Conversation
Perhaps lost among the many preparation documents for the Synod on Synodality, was a proposed method for synodal gatherings - the Spiritual Conversation - a way of listening to the Holy Spirit and each other where each can truly be heard.

For parishes who didn't practice this way of gathering, it is a lost opportunity, a way of doing and being Church beyond the synod. Be encouraged to use this video to help your parish transform how we speak and listen to each other, from the heart, as People of God. 

For more information, visit the Synod Resources page or the document on Spiritual Conversation.
