In May, 2016, Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego asked Fr. Hurley to coordinate a Diocesan Synod focusing on Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation, The Joy of Love. Approximately 130 delegates  are appointed, 24 priests from the Priests' Council and Deans.  The remaining pastors will nominate a parishioner to serve as a delegate.  Bishop's Pastoral Message, Embracing the Joy of Love focuses on five challenges.  Five challenge working groups will meet between August 20 and October 1, 2016.  Listening sessions will be conducted in the parishes by the delegates and their particular challenge.  All this leads up to a Synod General Assembly, October 29/30, 2016.
