How to integrate the different categories of people on the move into the Synodal process

Format: Texts & Image
Type: Synod Events
Organisation: Holy See

Last 7 February 2022, the Migrants &Refugees Section of the Integral Human Development Dicatery of the Holy See organised a webinar with the aims of listening to experiences taking place of participation of different categories of people on the move in the Synodal process in the African continent and of encouraging a greater participation at the diocesan, national and even continental levels.

The main speakers were Sister Nathalie Becquart, Xavière, Undersecretary of the Synod of Bishops, and Archbishop Buti Tlhagale, O.M.I. from Johannesburg, South Africa.

The webinar gathered a few participants coming from several Bishops’ Conferences in Africa (SACBC, Mozambique, Nigeria, Central African Republic, Cameroon and Kenya), including also a few migrants, displaced people and refugees, who in fact were the first to speak for each of the countries represented.

All the documents of the webinar are available here
