The Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture (ICTC) and the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center (IPJC) invite participants to “The Basin & Towel: A Summit on Synod, Women and the Future of Leadership.” This in-person event is 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Saturday, April 30, at Seattle University’s Campion Ballroom. The summit, part of Seattle University’s Catholic Heritage Series, is free and open to the public.
Pope Francis opened a process of synodality, which states as its purpose: “To search for God’s will on how to be Church and how the Church can best exist and pursue its mission in the world. It is a process of listening, conversingand discerning among all those who manage to participate. Decisions will be made in prayer and received in peace.”
At the same time, the Jesuit Superior General initiated a process of discerning how Jesuits can work more collaboratively with women in their ministries.
Led by ICTC Director Dr. Jeanette Rodriguez, the summit includes a facilitated four-part movement of discernment, discussion, prayer, a shared meal and live art, poetry and music, with a special performance by the Gospel Truth Choir. The summit will also feature the following sessions:
