Summary

Synodality is undeniably a significant focus in the ecclesiology of Pope Francis. Although difficult to define, this ecclesiological model has enormous potential and yet poses a significant challenge to all in the Church as a constitutive key to understanding ecclesial ministry and governance. As a fresh phase in the reception of the Second Vatican Council, synodality generates a personal and pastoral conversion of mentalities and structures to a new way of proceeding in the Church where pastors and faithful pray, meet, work together, take counsel together, and build up consensus.

This webinar offers possibilities to promote synodality by encouraging and developing participative structures at the level of the particular Church. In particular, and by way of example, the webinar will examine the possibility of refashioning aspects of the presbyteral council in accordance with the ecclesiogenesis that comes from the current synodalisation of the Church.
