Vatican City, Feb 15, 2020 / 11:03 am
The next ordinary assembly of the synod of bishops is to be held in the fall of 2022, according to a press release from the Vatican on Saturday.
The theme has not yet been decided, but will be up to Pope Francis, who was presented with three possible options by the council of the general secretariat of the synod in a meeting last week.
An ordinary general assembly of the synod of bishops is usually convoked by the pope every three years to discuss a matter of importance to the Church in general.
The last ordinary assembly was the 2018 synod of bishops on young people, the faith, and vocational discernment.
