Diocesan Pre-synodal Gathering
Each local Church culminates the diocesan phase of the synodal process with a Diocesan Pre-synodal Gathering. This gathering provides the opportunity for diverse members of the diocese to come together for a liturgical celebration, to pray together, to reflect on their experience of the synodal process in the diocese, to listen to feedback that has emerged from the listening sessions across the diocese, to dialogue about the current reality of the local Church and the signs of the times, and to discern the Holy Spirit’s call for the diocese on the path of synodality.
Our Diocesan Pre-synodal Gathering will take place on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the Cleveland Public Auditorium. We will begin at 10:00 am and conclude with Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist at 4:30 pm. The Closing Liturgy for the Synod will also serve as the kick-off for the National Eucharistic Revival. Immediately following Mass, Bishop Malesic will lead a Eucharistic Procession from the Cathedral to St. Peter's where we will end with Benediction and Adoration.
