For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission

Pope Francis has called for a synod in the church. The theme of this upcoming Synod is “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.”  

The synod process, informally known as the “synod on synodality,” opened in Rome on the weekend of October 9-10 and in particular churches on October 17.  An opening Mass took place at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on November 27 to mark the synod’s beginning in the Archdiocese of Boston.

“Dear brothers and sisters, let us have a good journey together!  May we be pilgrims in love with the Gospel and open to the surprises of the Holy Spirit. Let us not miss out on the grace-filled opportunities born of encounter, listening and discernment. In the joyful conviction that, even as we seek the Lord, he always comes with his love to meet us first.” -Pope Francis

It is mandated that that throughout the archdiocese all people attending public Masses, including weddings and funerals, wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. This is an extension of the mandate currently in effect, and expires on Thursday, March 3, 2022, which is the day after Ash Wednesday.

Mass celebrants, deacons, readers, servers, choir members, and instrumentalists, must all wear masks except when they are speaking.

Children under the age of five are not required to wear masks. Children under the age of two should not wear masks.

All Masses continue to be available to watch live via the livestream link for each church.
