Synodality training course. Last days to enrol
The second year of the Training Course on Synodality proposed by the Evangelii Gaudium Centre of the Sophia University Institute and organised in collaboration with the General Secretariat of the Synod is now underway.
The aim of the initiative is to train in synodality in order to be “disciples-missionaries” at the service of universal fraternity.
The lessons are online and will be held from November to May, every Monday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., according to the following schedule:
Module 1. “Diversity of ministry but unity of mission”: 6-13-20-27 November 2023 4-11-18 December 2023
Module 2. Places and method of participation: 15-22-29 January 2024 5-12-19-26 February 2024

Module 4. Synodality workshops (in presence and via web): 24-25-26 May 2024.
The course has an interdisciplinary approach and is addressed to priests, deacons, religious, consecrated men and women, pastoral workers, parish communities, lay men and women engaged in building a synodal Church.
Through a theological and pastoral preparation within everyone’s reach, the course aims to contribute to the synodal path initiated by the Church through a workshop and experiential training method, with lectures, group and sharing activities and comparisons with other international experiences. The course is in Italian, with translations in English, Portuguese and Spanish. For auditors (also organised in groups) the registration fee is 25euro per module, for students 40euro with recognition of 3 ECTS per module. It is possible to follow individual modules.
The course was launched online on 12 September with a lecture by Cardinal Mario Grech, Secretary General of the Synod. You can review the recording of the webinair in Italian at the following link www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0set08JiKY.
