In tandem with the Universal Church’s emphasis on Synodality, the Archdiocese of Malta seizes this opportune moment to illuminate the rich tradition of synods within the Church through the exhibition “A Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission”.
The term ‘synod’ inherently signifies a collective journey towards a shared goal. The Church has manifested this concept through assemblies aimed at contemplating both doctrine and discipline, crafting responses to the unique challenges of their respective eras, albeit in a metaphorical sense.
The Church in Malta boasts a storied history of synods, and this exhibition endeavors to shed light on this historical tapestry through an array of documents that bear witness to the transformative power of these events.
With this showcase, we aspire to offer a tool that not only commemorates our shared past but also inspires our local community to actively support the ongoing Synod of Bishops in Rome, wherein His Grace Archbishop Charles Scicluna plays a pivotal role. Together, let us embark on this journey towards a more deeply united and participatory Church.
