Synod Participation Opportunities
at Our Lady of the Lake
The Synod on Synodality is an assembling of the entire Church over the next two years, at the invitation of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, to encounter Christ, journey together and listen to the Holy Spirit. In the local phase, which runs through June 2022, we of the Archdiocese of Portland will be engaged in a process of prayer and discernment in each parish to collectively discern where and how God is inviting us to extend the Church’s mission in today’s new apostolic age.
