Synod 2016 October 20 – 22. Mark Your Calendars!
The bishop and the Synod planning team want to welcome everyone to participate in Synod this year. We have an exciting program planned, link including a visit from Archbishop Foley Beach!
Archbishop Beach will be with us to kick off Synod on Thursday, October 20, 2016. In honor of his visit, we will hold the Synod banquet on Thursday.
The theme for Synod 2016 is Commitment and we will have opportunities for bible study and fellowship as we as a Diocese commit ourselves more deeply to serving Christ and His Kingdom. We are also dedicating Synod to the memory of Bp. Parsons, with a mass to be celebrated by Bp. Ackerman.
Synod will be held at the Pere Marquette Hotel, 501 Main St., Peoria. Synod and hotel registration information will soon be available on this website.
We anticipate high attendance this year and may need to limit registrations. Please register early!
Just as a reminder, while everyone who wants to attend Synod needs to register via the website, Deputies and Alternates must also register using the parochial report forms in order to vote at Synod.
