Mass at St. Mary Cathedral - The Opening of the Synod

Saturday, October 16 from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

To assist the Church in the 2023 Synod of Bishops, every diocese throughout the world is asked to creatively solicit input from the lay faithful and those who are on the margins of the life of the Church and of society. These discussions will ultimately influence the composition of a letter to the Universal Church from Pope Francis.

Bishop Hurley will open the diocesan phase of this process at the 5 p.m. Mass at St. Mary Cathedral on Saturday, October 16. All are invited to attend or view this Mass online at

More information on how the Church asks you personally to participate will be available in the weeks and months to come. Please join in praying that this synodal process will be fruitful and for widespread engagement throughout our diocese.
