Global Tent for our Common Home: Religious Sisters Connecting Worldwide for the Pan-Amazon Synod (October 6-27)
#SinodoAmazonico #SowersOfPropheticHope #SowingHopeForOurPlanet
UISG invites Congregations worldwide to build/make a symbolic tent/space in their community as a reminder to pray for the Synod and to create awareness.
The tent is “a space to meet, to listen and pray for those who want to know the reality and spirituality of the Amazon Region.”
In Rome, REPAM (The Network for the Pan-Amazon Region) will open the Tent for our Common Home in the Church of Traspontina (Via della Conciliazione, very close to St Peter’s Basilica) where the indigenous people and others attending the Synod, will meet to pray and to talk.

Online Prayer: October 8 and 24
USG invites you to join an online PRAYER REFLECTION on Tuesday, October 8 and 24 at 2pm (Rome time)
Invite your community and gather together to participate in the first on-line UISG Prayer Network.
