In October 2021 the church began its preparation for the synod of bishops that will take place in October 2023. As part of the preparation, the church throughout the world has been invited to reflect on how its members journey together on a path of synodality with the goal to learning how to best live communion, achieve participation, and be open to mission.

Many women religious are participating in synod feedback sessions that are being hosted by their parishes or other organizations. Some religious congregations are gathering their own sisters to host sessions. Below you will find a preparatory reflection sheet and a process developed by LCWR that could be used for such gatherings. We are also listing some resources that LCWR has found helpful in preparing for the synod.
