Reflections on the Synod on Synodality – Voices from Africa
The African Synodality Initiative (ASI) invites you to a Zoom webinar titled ‘Walking the Synodal Path: Reflections on the Synod on Synodality – Voices from Africa’. ASI is a partnership between the Jesuit Conference of Africa and Madagascar (JCAM), the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM), and the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA). ASI aims to generate creative ideas and resources to support local churches in Africa and enable them to engage fruitfully and constructively in the synodal process.
