Welcome – and Thank You

Over the past seven months, more than 30,000 people have generously shared their stories and experiences of life, faith and the Church with the Plenary Council. Those stories will help shape this historic process by forming the agenda for the Plenary Council sessions in 2020 and 2021. Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Listening and Dialogue stage. If you haven’t yet shared your story, you have until March 2019 to do so.

The Plenary Council team wishes you all a happy and holy Christmas. We hope this is a time of love, joy and peace for every person and we look forward to continuing to work together with you in 2019.
