Pope Francis wants to hear from Catholics around the world. He has invited the Church to conduct a Synod between 2021 and 2023. The word “Synod” comes from a Greek word for “journeying together” — so appropriate for St. Francis Xavier Parish since our mission since 2018 has been exactly that: Journey Together.
Pope Francis has invited everyone to participate in “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission” by using the online individual participation form at https://www.dioceseofcleveland.org/synod/individual-participation between Feb. 1 and March 31.
If you have any questions about the Synod or participating in the process, please contact Fr. Mike at email@example.com or 330-764-8968.
