Synodal process for the Archdiocese of Gatineau: a snapshot of the pastoral zones

The Archdiocese of Gatineau has set out on a 15-month synodal process, starting in October 2018. A synod is a time of walking together, listening to one another, and prayerfully discerning a way forward.  The purpose of this process is to set out an action plan that will guide us for the coming years. In the fall of 2018, each parish was invited to hold a meeting with parishioners to describe the activities of the parish and to identify its strengths and weaknesses. In early December, a team from the diocese travelled throughout the diocese to meet delegates from each of the pastoral zones.  During these meetings, we reviewed the parish reports to get an accurate picture of strengths and weaknesses of the parishes in each zone.  We identified questions which we need to address together in this diocese.  You will find the reports of each of the pastoral zones of the diocese online by clicking on the image for the synodal process on the web site at diocesegatineau.org.   These reports will be incorporated into an interim report which will be published shortly.
