This webinar to promote diocesan activity for the synod is made possible by the Seelos Foundation in thanksgiving to Blessed Francis X. Seelos, C.Ss. R.

This webinar is extremely timely as many in the US Catholic Church are asking the question “How do we respond to the Vatican’s call to embark on the 7-year Laudato Si’ Action Platform journey, alongside the Synod on Synodality, and the USCCB’s call for the Eucharistic Revival Movement?” We are honored to have presenters on this webinar who have heard the question and have some much-needed wisdom to impart to the US Catholic community.
