This sections provides resources for those organizing the consultation in the diocese for the First Phase of the Synod 2021-2023. Here you will find suggested methods for conducting the consultations, reflection questions for participants, templates, and other useful links.

The main references for the Synod include the Preparatory Document which gives an overview of the theme of the Synod, "For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission." It also explains the objectives of the Synod and the consultation process. In addition, the Vademecum provides all the basic information to help you organize the consultation in the diocese.

A key feature of the Synodal Process is that it entails methods of dialogue that enable people to have a concrete experience of synodality.
