In October 2021, the Catholic Church officially began the largest consultative process in human history. The entire people of God, some 1.34 billion Catholics worldwide, were asked to participate in a process of listening and engagement together over the course of two years. Why embark on this incredibly novel, time-consuming, and expensive task? Because your church wants to hear from you.

This booklet explains and explores why the leaders of the Catholic Church have discerned that the synodal path is what “God expects of the church of the third millennium.” This Synod on Synodality is not just another meeting. It is the beginning of a conversion process that is essential to the life of the church and its mission. And the Church needs you to carry it out.

Michael J. Sanem is the minister of evangelization at the Church of the Nativity in Leawood, Kansas. He studied history and philosophy at Loyola University Chicago, and systematic theology and spirituality as a Bernardin Scholar at Catholic Theological Union. He has written for a variety of Catholic publications while working as a pastoral minister, prison minister, theology teacher, and homeless outreach coordinator. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with his wife and three sons and writes regularly at www.incarnationiseverywhere.com.
