The Synod on Synodality is a two-year process of listening and dialogue, starting in late 2021 and concluding with an international gathering in late 2023.

We invite you to make a year-end gift to our annual appeal online. No gift is too small and every little bit makes an impact. 

The Conference is pleased to announce that it has received a new grant from the GHR foundation.


Embody the call to be "bearers of gratitude" in a world in need of hope. Please know of our prayers and gratitude this Thanksgiving.
