In Their Own Words: Synod Delegate Reflections
After ten months of preparation, 100 consultation sessions, and an online survey sent to all diocesan faithful, the Diocese of San José Diocesan Synod General Assembly was held during the weekend of January 27-29, 2023. Nearly 200 pastor-selected delegates representing parishes, schools, and local Catholic organizations gathered in a spirit of prayer and discernment to prioritize the many recommendations that resulted from the preparation efforts. During the final hours of the Synod, delegates openly and honestly shared their reflections and takeaways from the weekend. Below are only a few selections. These are presented in more depth alongside a detailed summary of the weekend on our website, dsj.org/diocesan-synod.
