Synod Round Tables

In this assembly, the synod hall has a different layout from what used to be in the other synods before. The amphitheater format used in other synod assemblies has been abandoned and the use of round tables has been adopted, where 12 people at each table sit side by side, face to face, eye to eye, comprising of bishops, priests, Religious men and women and lay men and women. They are brought together by the common languages in which they can communicate, so that they can dialogue and discern together. The panel of the Risen Christ by Nervi and the Salus Populi Romani icon have been used to decorate the ‘new’ Synod Hall, where the Working Groups and the General Congregations will take place.
