In the words of Pope Francis,”
Without prayer, there will be no Synod.”

St. Agnes will host a zoom prayer service on the eve of the opening of the Synodal Assembly. Cardinal Mario Grech, General Secretary of the General Secretariat of the Synod, invites the faithful from around the world to prayerfully participate. He reminds everyone that the Synodal Assembly is above all a spiritual event of prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit, who is the true protagonist of the event.

We will be joined on zoom by BJ Brown who will be offering a reflection.

Please join us in the comfort of your homes using this Zoom link.  All are welcome.
