About the Synod

On Sunday, August 3, 2003, Bishop William K. Weigand proclaimed the opening of a synod for the Diocese of Sacramento, an extensive process to be carried out over 15 months involving laity, clergy and religious.


The diocesan synod is an assembly of the laity, priests, deacons and religious called together by the Holy Spirit to meet with Bishop Weigand from Oct. 11-13, 2004, in prayer, dialogue, discernment and deliberation. This was only the third synod in the history of the Diocese of Sacramento. The Church understands a synod to be primarily the work of the Holy Spirit.
