Please Participate in the Synod

Take the Survey

Pope Francis has invited all Catholics to participate in preparing for the Synod of Bishops on Synodality, which intends to help the Church better understand the beliefs, participation, and levels of satisfaction of her members. Pope Francis has avowed that this Synod must become an instrument for listening to the People of God. Unprecedentedly, Pope Francis is calling on the laity of the Church to engage in this process by providing input for bishops to review during the Synod. The Archdiocese of San Francisco and St. Charles Church invite all parishioners to provide our input, thoughts, and beliefs by completing the Disciple Maker Index Survey and to attend one engagement session, either in person or virtually. The The Disciple Maker Index Survey is now open until February 14. (Paper copies of the survey are available upon request.) Engagement sessions will be offered at various locations in the Archdiocese during February and March. Additional information can be found on the San Francisco Archdiocese website at If you have questions, please contact Kathy Fagliano at 650-591-7349 ext. 402 or Thank you in advance for your participation in this important initiative!
