What is all this about a synod? Why does it matter to me as a Catholic woman?

Pope Francis has launched the Synod on Synodality, a two-year global process of listening to the faithful of Catholic Church. The video explains what the Synod on Synodality is and why your participation is important. All CWL members are encouraged to take part in the sessions being held in our parishes and to pray for the success of the Synod on Synodality.

Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Vancouver and CWL Honorary Life Member, Barbara Dowding (2014-2016), was invited as one of five Canadians to attend the opening celebrations of the XVI Assembly of Synod of Bishops, in October 2021.
