I hereby establish for the Diocese of Jefferson City the Commission for the Diocesan Phase of the 2023 Synod of Bishops on Synodality, which will be responsible for recommending a process of consultation to the Diocesan Bishop, for implementing the process as determined by him, and for drafting the diocesan report for submission to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in April 2022.
