In an online Zoom event exclusive to subscribers of America magazine, our team of experts will unpack what happened during the Synod on Synodality’s first session: What topics were discussed? What were the agreements and disagreements? What are the proposals for the church’s future? What was the atmosphere like inside the synod hall?

Note: This event has concluded. Watch the recording below.

  • Gerard O’Connell, America’s Vatican correspondent who has covered every synod since 1985

The event will be hosted and moderated by Sebastian Gomes, America’s executive editor for audio and video who was also in Rome for the synod.
