DIOCESAN EFFICIENCY AND CHURCH GOVERNANCE
Saturday, July 22, 2023
at the Cathedral Guadalupe Dallas
YOUNG ADULTS IN THE CHURCH
Saturday, September 16, 2023
at All Saints, Dallas
As we prepare for the synod in 2024, Bishop Burns has asked that Catholics in the diocese pray for the success of the synod and for the growth of the Catholic faith in our diocese.
Good and gracious God,
heavenly Father, we thank You for the wisdom and grace You have given us through Your Son, Jesus. Increase our faith so that we may hear the voice of our Good Shepherd and joyfully follow the path His love illuminates before us.
As we prepare for the synod in the Diocese of Dallas, send forth anew the Holy Spirit to guide us. Grant that our vision and understanding may be enlightened as we discern the mission of this local church in our time, while never losing sight of Your will and our hope to be with You in heaven.
We entrust this synod to the maternal care of our patroness, Our Lady of Guadalupe, who intercedes for us and accompanies us, and whose “yes” in love and faith we seek to imitate.
We pray with confidence through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Listening at the Diocese of Dallas Synod
Plans are well underway for the 2024 Synod — that big meeting to advise the bishop about the spiritual, material and administrative situation of the Dallas Diocese. Essential to its success are the “listening sessions” now taking place: two years of honest and charitable dialogue for the good of the Church and her mission in the world..
Following each listening session, an online survey will be available for a limited time to allow feedback from those who could not attend in person. The next Synod listening session survey will be on the topic of Sacraments and Sacramental Preparation and will be open from April 16, 2023 – April 24, 2023
