Support the Amazon Synod: 6-27 October 2019
UISG invites Congregations worldwide to support the Synod in these ways:
- build/make a symbolic tent/space in their community as a reminder to pray for the Synod and to create awareness.
The tent is “a space to meet, to listen and pray for those who want to know the reality and spirituality of the Amazon Region.”
- join an online prayer reflection on Tuesday, 8 October (Your time here) and Tuesday, 24 October at 2pm Rome Time (Your time here).
- participate in the Webinar on 16 October: 'Sowing Hope for the Planet: Amazon' (5 languages)
- meet on line or at UISG “The Synod through the eyes and hearts of the Religious Sisters who attend the Synod” (5 languages)
