FROM OUR PARISH DELEGATE
 
I’m Judy Weiss and I had the privilege of representing OLQP as the parish delegate for the Milwaukee Archdiocese Synod.
 
In talking with a number of people, it was clear a lot of people didn’t know exactly what the synod was all about.  Essentially a synod is a meeting and discussion of issues pertaining to the church. In our case, Archbishop Listecki called upon not only church leaders but the lay people of the church to discern on the priorities of the Catholic Church and how we will move forward in the next decade.
 
As the representative for our parish, it was my responsibility to take with me all the concerns and issues that were stated during our parish wide meetings last fall. Your responses were first taken to the district meetings, and then I took those results to the Synod.  At the weekend long Synod the main priorities which were discussed and discerned upon were: Liturgy, Cultural Diversity, Evangelization, Formation, Catholic Social Teaching, Marriage and Family, Stewardship, and Leadership.  For each of these priorities listed, there were several different approaches the church could take, and we were asked to decide which approach was most necessary and relevant. We first met in our small groups to ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and then discussed and voted on our top suggestions for the church.  After we came to an agreement we then met with the entire assembly to cast our votes.  Over the next few months, the Archbishop will be praying, reviewing and analyzing the results of the votes and suggestions shared at the Synod. He will then compose a document which will integrate all the priorities established.  
 
It was not only exciting but it was very invigorating to see so many Catholics who were passionate and so in love with our Church. The representation was diversified and parishes of all sizes were represented. I feel this is an exciting time for us.  The church will move forward in this next decade based on our input.  As the Archbishop proclaimed during the closing liturgy of the Synod, it is now time for us to renew, ignite and be excited. I am excited and I hope you share this same excitement.
~~~~~~~~~
With many thanks to Judy Weiss for saying “Yes” when asked to give of her time to represent our parish at the Synod.
