For a synodal Church

Pope Francis invites us all to participate in a three-year worldwide process. The road to the Synod of Bishops 2023 has been officially opened by Pope Francis in Rome on October 9-10, 2021 and the following weekend in the dioceses around the world.

In the following phases the dioceses, associations like Kolping and finally the Bishops’ Conferences will be involved before the process leads to the actual Synod of Bishops in Rome in October 2023. We ask all Kolping Families, all national Kolping associations and other communities in our international Kolping community to participate in this process.
