Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2022 Catholic Partnership Summit!
During our time together, we explore various aspects of Living Synodal Leadership and what that means as members of the Body of Christ. Thank you for your active participation, listening, and openness to the movement of the Holy Spirit, surely present in all of our discussions and panels!
We also want to offer our sincere thanks to those who sponsored this year's Summit. Your generosity made this event possible!
Living Synodal Leadership is a bold vision. It is how we live out our call to servant leadership and co-responsible decision-making for a healthy, thriving Church. It is actively listening to all voices, to all experiences, and embracing new, creative, and agile ways of leading in a changing world and Church. Synodal leadership employs restorative practices that move us toward healing and unity as the body of Christ. It is a willingness to regularly pause, consider, and answer the call of the Holy Spirit. It involves including those historically excluded from leadership and opening seats for them at decision-making tables. Synodal leadership offers hope, requires courage, and builds trust. It is our mission in action.
Featured speakers will address tangible ways our Church answers the call to heal, strengthen, and unify the body of Christ. Representing a diversity of voices, perspectives, and experiences, they will share how they are living synodal leadership and offer best practices for other leaders.
Many ideas were raised during the 2022 Catholic Partnership Summit as to how we can promote synodal leadership and unity in the Church. As an organization, Leadership Roundtable has committed to the following:
