Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops Via della Conciliazione 34, Vatican City
Dear Secretary General,
Mindful that, “much of the richness of this listening phase will come from discussions among parishes, lay movements, schools and universities, religious congregations, neighbourhood Christian communities, social action, ecumenical and inter-religious movements, and other groups,1” we are one of those other groups named Synodality in Central Illinois who met for four listening and sharing sessions through March and April of this year. It is with great hope and joy, faith and devotion to our beloved church that we share this report.
