What do U.S. diocesan synod reports say?

The diocesan phase of the Synod on Synodality is concluding. Episcopal conferences around the world were expected to file by Aug. 15 summaries of their findings in the diocesan phase of the Church’s two-year synodal process.

In the United States, the U.S. bishops conference was granted an extension on that deadline, giving it until the end of August to send its report to the Vatican’s General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops, the office coordinating the synod process.

Over the course of several months, listening sessions have been held in every U.S. diocese, asking Catholics about how their local Church is ‘journeying together’ and how the Holy Spirit is inviting them to deepen this process.

Each diocese of the U.S. was expected to synthesize the results of its local listening sessions into a 10-page report, to be sent by June 30 to the USCCB, where all of the reports would be synthesized into a single document of 10 pages or less. But some dioceses are still working on their reports as of mid-August.

The Pillar has compiled a list of dioceses that have made their diocesan reports publicly available, with links to individual reports.

As of September 26, 117 of the country’s 176 Latin Catholic dioceses have made their reports available online.

The list will be updated regularly.
