Dear members of our faith community, The Archdiocese of Newark has announced the release of our Synod on Synodality Synthesis Report, which captures the voices of more than 15,000 people across northern New Jersey. This effort is the local phase of Pope Francis’ two-year Synod on Synodality, a worldwide effort to discern how the Catholic Church can better engage with today’s faith communities. The archdiocesan report will be part of a consolidated U.S. report submitted to the Vatican for the Synod of Bishops in Rome in October.
