Synodal Efforts in El Paso & Monterey Dioceses Move the Spirit

[Excerpt]

"Historically, community organizing has been rooted in the belief in the capacity of people to come together in action that moves their communities closer to a common good. This involves thousands of conversations about what is happening in a community and what is to be done, and it requires a space for this process to unfold. Through parish organizing, IAF leaders and organizers have learned to patiently and with commitment engage in careful listening to create the type of “productive tension” to which Pope Francis has called the church. This allows us to walk together toward a better future."
