New paths for evangelization must be designed for and with the People of God who live in this region: inhabitants of communities and rural areas, of cities and large metropolises, people who live on river banks, migrants and displaced persons, and especially for and with indigenous peoples.”

In preparation for the synod, Fr. Séamus Finn, OMI, Director of OMIUSA JPIC, has assembled the following resources.

The following three resources (1 article and 2 videos) are excellent resources as we enter the final phase of preparation for the forthcoming synod; Amazonia, New paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology”
