Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament
Bishop William Weigand convened the second session of the Third Diocesan Synod on Monday, January 16, 2006, in Sacramento at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. During the session, nearly 250 Synod delegates discussed progress made toward implementing the eight pastoral initiatives of the Synod.
Discussion centered on the accountability report synod delegates received from the 12-member Synod Implementation Commission. The commission’s work during the past year focused on accountability and assessment, with a long-term vision of synod implementation occurring over the next five to 10 years.
The report summarized the results of a questionnaire sent to all parishes to assess the current status of each parish with regard to the eight pastoral initiatives.
