Synod on Synodality – the Australian Synthesis

The Australian National Synthesis for the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, colloquially known as the Synod on Synodality, has been published. The Australian synthesis draws from the local diocesan consultations that took places between October 2021 and March 2022, after which diocesan reports were prepared.
