How Do We Walk Together as Church?

Embracing Pope Francis’ New Call to Synodality

What is synodality, and why does it matter to ordinary Catholics today?The Second Vatican Council (1962–65) shone a light on the idea of all the baptized – the whole People of God – walking, working and discerning together to further their mission as Christians. More recently, Pope Francis has brought the Church’s teaching in this area into sharper focus, calling synodality “an essential dimension of the Church.”

Join authors Moira McQueen and Massimo Faggioli for a robust conversation on the topic of Synodality and how the faithful at all levels can participate in Pope Francis’ call to solidarity and contribute to a rich reflection on a vibrant future for the Catholic Church.


National Catholic Reporter correspondent Christopher White will serve as a moderator/interviewer for this conversation.
