It was called a “mega session,” and it lived up to its name. Nearly 90 members of the Archdiocese of New Orleans – priests, deacons, women and men religious and laypersons – attended an important discernment session of the Ninth General Synod March 5 at Notre Dame Seminary. The 12-member Synod Leadership Team and about 75 members of the seven Ministry Focus Teams met to discuss a “unifying theme” and several “priorities for future ministry.” The final plan will be promulgated by Archbishop Gregory Aymond, above, on May 24, the Feast of Pentecost.
