On October 9-10th 2021 in Rome, Pope Francis launched the theme of the 2023 Synod of Bishops - For a Synodal Church: "Communion, Participation, Mission". The diocesan phase of the Synod involves consultation with the lay faithful examining what life is like in the Church at this moment in time. How do we make decisions? How do we create community? How welcoming are we? Do we provide opportunities for people to participate in the mission of the Church to bring the love of Christ into every corner of the world?

The preparatory document for the Synod included over thirty questions. Great flexibility, however, was given to each diocese to adapt the questions to their own situation. That flexibility extends to parishes.
