Africa Synodal Continental Assembly
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Working Document for the Continental Stage

The Working Document for the Continental Stage (DCS) is at the core of the Continental Stage and, especially of the Continental Assemblies. It is a text of the General Secretariat of the Synod produced from the Syntheses it received following the local consultation of the People of God in the first stage of the Synodal Process (October 2021 – 15 August 2022).

It is the fruit of listening and discernment that returns to all local Churches that which emerged from local/national syntheses. It is intended to enable dialogue between local Churches and between the local Church and the universal Church.

The DCS is available in several languages and format here (external link).
