Catholic Word of the Day: DIOCESAN SYNOD, 09-19-10 ^ | 08-19-10 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dict

Posted on 08/19/2010 9:52:52 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


An assembly in each diocese, convoked by the local ordinary, of all the pastors and other diocesan and clerical religious administrators to deal with such matters as pertain to the clergy and faithful of the diocese. Diocesan synods, according to the Code of Canon Law (1918), were to be held at least once every ten years.

I know our Archbishop gets together with the priests more often than every ten years -- more like quarterly or even more often.

But I am wondering if this is a mandatory ten year attendance for ALL priests in a diocese??

Anyone know?
