Synod Update: Continental Document for North America Sent to Rome

The North American (continental phase) final document has been presented in Rome by American Bishop Daniel Flores and his counterpart from the Canadian Bishops Conference.
This is one of six continental documents that will form the basis for the instrumentum laborem, or working document, issued prior to the Synod of Bishops in October 2023 to set the stage for the gathering.

The North American Final Document for the Continental Stage is available in English, Spanish, and French.

More information about the North American Continental Stage of the 2021-2024 Synod – For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission, as well as additional resources can be found at usccb.org/synod.

The synthesis document from the Diocese of Trenton and a delegation of four people from our diocese participated in creating this continental document.
