Diocese of Vaduz, in Liechtenstein, will not Participate in the Synod

The Archbishop of Vaduz, in Liechtenstein, has decided not to set the synod process in motion in the diocese

Newsroom – Liechtenstein – Vaduz (October 21, 2021, 2:30 PM, Gaudium Press) Monsignor Wolfgang Haas, Archbishop of Vaduz in Liechtenstein, has communicated that he has no interest in participating in the complex Synod process for synodality.

In an official statement on his diocese’s website, the Archbishop stated that the synodal process is too complex, complicated, and unnecessary for his diocese.

In fact, Archbishop Hass considers that his diocese of Vaduz, with a population of 35,000 inhabitants of Catholic majority and 160 km² is too small for the complex procedure.

Furthermore, the Archbishop stated that “the close relations in the parishes allow a mutual, quick and simple contact between the pastors and the laity”.

According to him, what the Synod seeks to achieve already exists today in his archdiocese.

In recent years, Monsignor is often the target of controversy and contention for his alleged opposition to Pope Francis. (FM)
