The team tasked with facilitating participation in the ongoing preparations for the Synod on Synodality in Eswatini’s Catholic Diocese of Manzini is conducting home visits to the people of God in the Diocese to encourage conversations on the Synod.
In a report shared on Tuesday, May 3, Ayanda Nkhambule who has been entrusted alongside others “to facilitate a smooth process of discernment for the people of God” within the Diocese highlights a number of programs that have been launched to drive the Synodal conversations, including surveys.
“The Synodal process has already begun in our Diocese. Various programs have been prepared to ensure that every member of the church participates. Currently, there is an online survey, where members of the church are encouraged to answer a few questions, as we reflect on the journey of faith thus far,” Ms. Nkhambule is quoted as saying.
Explaining how the home visits on the Synod have been structured, Ms. Nkhambule says, “A group of people from our local parishes have been selected to form part of the synod teams. These people are expected to visit every Catholic home.”
During the home visits, families are requested to come together, and engage in discussion on various topics, through the guidance of the delegates from the synod teams.
