On Saturday April 2, 2022, Cistercian was happy to host the second public “listening session” in preparation for the Dallas Synod. Listening sessions are opportunities for people in the diocese to come together to discuss the life of the Church, and to offer their insights to the commission charged with assisting Bishop Burns in preparing the agenda for the Synod in 2024. The topic for discussion on Saturday was the liturgy. To learn more and participate in this important and ongoing initiative, visit the Synod website. Thank you to all the Cistercian students, alumni, faculty, staff and families who helped facilitate this event! May God bless the faithful of this diocese and enable us all to draw closer to him and fulfill our mission in the world.
