The Amazon:
Common Home

Please join us for “The Amazon: Common Home,” a compelling event series that brings the Amazon to Rome for the bishops’ synod on the Amazon. Across eight countries with approximately 400 indigenous communities and millions of people, the Amazon is a place where the Creator’s glory is revealed.

We invite you to reflect on the Amazon and its peoples through a city-wide event series that brings the themes of the synod to life. The event calendar below makes choosing an event easy.

Each event is organized by its own event host. All public events include contact information so you can get in touch to learn more and register to attend the event.

A few events are private, and are included on the calendar for information only. Learn more about Amazon: Common Home through this document by Roberto Carrasco Rojas, OMI, a member of the coordinating group.
