Pax Christi International and the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative will host a series of listening sessions for the Synod on Synodality, and we hope you will be able to join us. 

See a brief explanation about why Pax Christi is engaging in this process in this video.

The listening session especially for the United States and Canada will be held on Thursday March 31, 7:30 PM ET / 4:30 PM PT

In case you are unable to attend this session, the full list of Zoom meetings in other regions is available here. Please feel free to join any session that is convenient for you. 

The listening session will consist of a 10-minute introduction, followed by small group conversations on the following questions for about an hour: 

  • If the Church were to adopt nonviolence as a way of life, how would relationships in the Church change?
  • How can the Church best promote nonviolence and just peace? 
  • Can you share an example of how the Church promotes or undermines nonviolence and just peace in your community?

Interpretation will be available if needed for the introduction, but the breakout groups will be arranged by language preference. Register here. 

Notes from each small group will be sent to in order for that group’s ideas to become a part of Pax Christi International’s overall contribution to the synod process. By mid-June, a draft document will be made available for participants’ review. By the beginning of July, we will send a final document to the Synod of Bishops Office in Rome.

Please share this invitation with your community.
