Quotes from the Synod
It is nice to have the opportunity to share knowing that Rome is listening and wants our thoughts. ~ Age 26
One thing I like about this church is how we have such a good program for younger people in the Church because eventually the younger people will become the people running the Church. ~ Age 14
My dream Church would be inclusive to all types of people, no matter their background. ~ Age 12
We need to improve the role of women in the Church. ~ Age 73
I never thought I’d have the opportunity to openly question “the Church.” I hope the Church can be open to new ideas, concepts, and needs. ~ Age 92
My dream is to have more opportunities for women to hold leadership roles [in the Church]. ~ Age 85
