Listening Resources

The Art of Listening

Listening is an important part of pastoral accompaniment. The art of listening requires practice. The following resources have been selected for our members and community as a means to learn about, practice, and implement listening in your pastoral practices.

We were inspired by the Synod on for a Synodal Church that will be launched by the Vatican in 2021. If you would like to learn and follow the Synod, you can visit the website linked below or view the resources from the Synod listed below. We hope that with these resources you will be able to host your own listening sessions.
