2022 Synod Listening SessionsThoughts and Ideas of our Parishioners
On behalf of the Franciscan Friars and the community of St. Francis, I want to thank all the people who gave their time and ideas to this Synod Process. And many thanks to the Pastoral Council for ensuring the process continues into the future.
Fr. John O’Connor OFM – Pastor
During March and April, we joined with all the parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington in conducting “Listening Sessions” with our parishioners to provide input for ourselves, the Bishop, and the Pope to address the question of how can we, as a synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, “journey together,” by proclaiming, celebrating, and living the Gospel?
Each of the five Listening Sessions show the responses of the participants to a series of questions related to our “Journeying Together” ** (Note: Some editing and combining of ideas / comments was made during the consolidation process.)
