WHAT IS THE SYNOD ON THE AMAZON?
The Amazon: New Paths for the Church and for Integral Ecology

The Vatican has invited the bishops from all dioceses in the world to travel to Rome to discuss the Amazon and its people. 

This is the first synod in which integral ecology will be applied to a specific place in creation. That’s a landmark for the Church. The synod runs 6-27 October, and the week of 13 October is dedicated to integral ecology. 

TO ILLUMINATE OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THIS UNPRECEDENTED SYNOD WE WELCOME DR. STEFFANO MONTANO OF FORDHAM UNIVERSITY 
       

who serves on the board of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States (ACHTUS), and is a member of the Association of Practical Theology (APT), the Religious Education Association (REA), and the American Academy of Religion (AAR).

LET US PRAY IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE EARTH PROTECTORS OF AMAZON
