Below is a list of the parishes across the Diocese of Erie that held scheduled sessions in preparation for the 2023 Synod of Bishops to be held in Rome.

The sessions were guided by trained facilitators and notes were contributed to the diocesan Faith Formation Office so they could assist the Chancery of the Diocese of Erie in preparing a report to be shared with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The national report will be merged with that of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops before being sent to the Vatican.
