Walking Together Toward a Synodal Conversion

On 20 May 2023, Garratt Publishing, together with SA Catholics for an Evolving Church (SACEC), Australasian Catholic Coalition For Church Reform (ACCCR), and Yarra Theological Union hosted the webinar, Walking Together Towards a Synodal Conversion presented by Rafael Luciani.

We are experiencing a crisis in the transmission of the faith, a crisis caused by the continued existence of a clerical institutional model.

Pope Francis says synodality is the new model of Church. A model where bishops listen to the People of God as members of the People of God. A Church for the third millennium must recognise the need for reform of the outdated dominant theological-cultural model.

The transition towards a new model for the third millennium needs to recognise, first, we are facing a systemic and structural problem that reveals the weakness of the dominant theological-cultural model which has become outdated and needs not only renewal but reform. –Rafael Luciani, SYNODALITY, A New Way of Proceeding in the Church

Rafael spoke on this important topic from Venezuela, his home country. A Question & Answer session followed.

The webinar was recorded and can can be viewed below.
