Resources for the Continental Stage

Now is the time to build on the momentum the Spirit has already unleashed in the first stage of the global synod.

Have you heard the Good News?!

On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, members of CEAMA and Discerning Deacons presented a synthesis of their Pilgrimage to Mexico City as a respectful contribution to the Continental Stage of the Global Synod. Click below to read the report, or visit our Pilgrimage page for more highlights from our journey.
