Synodal Listening Sessions
The NACC hosted four (4) Listening Sessions (March 29 & 31, and April 19 & 22, 2022) as part of the synodal process. Sessions were free and open to all Catholic NACC members and non-members who were interested. NACC Executive Director Erica Cohen Moore provided a brief overview of the synodal process and participants broke into small groups for spiritual conversations on two (2) questions:
- What have been the joys and obstacles in your journeying together with the church?
- Reflecting on our conversation, how might the Holy Spirit be prompting you, and all of us as church, to improve the ways we are able to journey together?
Continuing Education Certificate ~ participation in a Listening Session is eligible for 1.5 CEH
The survey is now closed. Thank you for your responses!
